Keto Cheese Fondue

You can snack through a meal with this fantastic fondue featuring Gouda and Gruyère cheeses and keto-friendly “dippers.” If the fondue gets cold, you can reheat it in a microwave oven on half power for 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until smooth and heated through.
Serves 4

Equipment:

  • Fondue pot or a nice, heavy, heat-safe ceramic serving dish
  • Skewers

Instructions

  • Prepare your fondue pot and place over low heat, or if you’re using a dish, warm in a low oven or place it in a bowl and cover with boiling water, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine both cheeses, the xanthan gum, and the garlic powder. Toss well to coat. Set aside.
  • In a medium, heavy-bottomed pot, over medium heat, bring the wine, broth, and lemon juice to a simmer. Immediately reduce the heat to low, then whisk in the cheese mixture, small handfuls at a time, until it’s smooth and creamy. Whisk in the nutmeg, then transfer to a warmed serving dish or fondue pot.
  • Arrange the “Dippers” items on a platter or serving board. Serve with the fondue and skewers.

    We loved the flavor, however, the fondue was very thin and would not thicken up. We ended up adding more cheese and a bit of flour. It still wouldn’t thicken.

    • It’s important to sprinkle cheese in small amounts, slowly while whisking. Otherwise it will not incorporate with the liquid properly.

  2. Where can I purchase the fondue set-up shown in the photo?
