Fall in Love with this Autumn Appetizer!

You’re going to fall in love with this Fall Fondue Board! It’s just perfect for a fun autumn get-together with friends. I can’t wait to show you everything you need to build this festive board! With an amazing assortment of fresh and seasonal dippers around a baked pumpkin bowl filled with a melty cheese fondue, it’s perfect for cooler weather. For this recipe, I used my trusty gouda and cheddar cheese fondue recipe, and swapped out individual cheeses for three cups of cheddar/asiago/gouda cheese blend I picked up at Kroger. It was delicious! Either way you do it, the fondue turns out creamy and perfect for dipping.

Watch Me Make a Fall Fondue Board

Step into the kitchen with me to make this scrumptious, gorgeous fondue board.

What is Fondue?

Fondue usually describes a melted cheese (or chocolate!) dish served out of a shared pot, with bread, fruits or vegetables to dip in it. How do you make fondue? Basically, you melt cheese and seasonings together, stir in half and half or cream, and voila! Fondue. What can I dip in cheese fondue? I’m tempted to say literally anything, because I’d try almost anything dipped in melted cheese. But if you’re looking for specifics, we love to dip:

  • breads
  • fruits
  • vegetables
  • crackers
  • hard meats

Because it goes with so many things, fondue makes a great appetizer, snack or even a light meal. And of course, dessert! My favorite fondue recipes:

How to Make Gouda and Asiago Cheese Fondue

  • Toss the shredded cheese, flour and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Stir until the cheese is coated with the flour and nutmeg.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic to a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low. Add the half & half and cheese.
  • Let the cheese melt slowly over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. If the fondue becomes too thick, whisk in more half & half. If the fondue is too thin, add more cheese.
  • Pour into baked pumpkin bowl on the board.

  • Soft Pretzel Sticks
  • Broccoli Florets
  • Fig & Thyme Crackers
  • Cranberry Walnut Artisan Bread
  • Sliced Baguette
  • Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • Peppered Salami
  • Chorizo
  • Dried Apricots
  • Plums

How to Store and Reheat Fondue

Can I save leftover fondue? Yep! Allow the fondue to cool completely before storing in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to five days.  Can I freeze cheese fondue? You can freeze fondue for up to two months. Just make sure to let it cool before storing it in a freezer-safe container. Defrost completely in the refrigerator (overnight) before re-heating. To reheat fondue, place it in a sauce pan on low and stir frequently while it melts.
