How to Make Gouda and Cheddar Cheese Fondue

Serving your fondue in a festive baked pumpkin bowl? Start by following these directions for making the pumpkin bowl.

To make the fondue, first toss the shredded cheeses, flour and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Stir until the cheese is coated with the flour and nutmeg.

Next, add the olive oil and garlic to a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute. Then reduce heat to low and add the half & half and cheese. Let the cheese melt slowly over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth.

If using the pumpkin bowl, preheat the oven to 350°F. Then add the cheese fondue to the baked pumpkin bowl and return to the oven. Let bake until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve with red grapes, bread cubes, pear slices. Enjoy!
