Cheddar Whiskey Fondue Recipe


A touch of whiskey gives this rich cheddar fondue a Scottish highland fling. It is fast and easy to make using few ingredients.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup minced sweet onion
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pound grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup whiskey
  • Cubes of rye and onion bread for dippers


In a heavy saucepan, gently saute the onions in the butter until soft and translucent. Add milk and bring to a simmer. Stir in cheddar cheese until melted and smooth.

Whisk together cornstarch and whiskey until smooth. While constantly stirring, slowly pour whiskey mixture into cheese mixture and continue to cook until thickened.

Pour cheddar whiskey fondue into a fondue pot or heat-proof bowl. Serve with rye or onion bread cubes as dippers.
