For a dip no one can resist, serve up some hot and melty Gouda and Cheddar Cheese Fondue. In a festive baked pumpkin bowl, it makes the perfect appetizer for your Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving feast.


  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded gouda cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup half and half

For Dipping:

  • 1 bunch red grapes
  • 2 cups cubed bread
  • 1 pear, sliced
  • roasted Brussels sprouts


  1. Roast the pumpkin bowl (optional)
  2. Meanwhile, toss the shredded cheeses, flour and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Stir until the cheese is coated with the flour and nutmeg.
  3. 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.
  4. Let the cheese melt slowly over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  6. If serving in a pumpkin bowl, add the cheese fondue to the roasted pumpkin bowl and return to the oven. Let bake until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve with red grapes, bread cubes, pear slices, and roasted brussels sprouts.
