When we ate at The Melting Pot Houston last month they were offering a special cheese fondue for the night: Bacon and Brie. It was creamy, gooey, and rich. Exactly what you want a perfect cheese fondue to be! Since this was a special, the recipe isn’t in The Melting Pot cookbook so I recreated it from memory below. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Bacon and Brie Fondue
- 3 ounces Baby Brie softened (or substitute spreadable Brie)
- 1/2 cup Gruyere Cheese shredded
- 1/2 cup Buttercase cheese shredded (you can substitute Fontina, Gouda, or Emmenthaler cheese)
- 1/2 shallot finely chopped
- 3/4 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup bacon diced or crumbled
- 2 tablespoons green onion chopped
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- The Melting Pot's Garlic and Wine Seasoning to taste (optional)
- Heat wine in a double boiler or electric fondue pot.
- Add chopped shallots and brie. Mix with a fork or whisk until creamy and combined.
- Slowly add shredded cheese and mix until creamy.
- Add lemon juice, bacon, and Garlic and Wine Seasoning.
- Stir again, then top with green onions and serve.
- *Serve with crisp vegetables, toasted bread, and crunchy green apple slices.
I served this fondue with raw squash, broccoli, baby carrots, and cauliflower. Then I toasted and cubed garlic bread and served it on the side too.
Add white wine over medium heat then add softened brie cheese and stir until smooth.
Once you have added and melted all the cheese top with bacon and seasonings.
