Cheddar Tomato Fondue

by Brennans Market Admin

Serving Size:Serves 4-6


2/3 cup finely chopped drained canned tomatoes

2 garlic cloves, lightly crushed

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

3 Tablespoons dry white wine\

1 Tablespoon cornstarch

12 oz (3 cups) Cheddar, coarsely grated

Accompaniments: cubes of French bread, steamed broccoli, and cauliflower


This fondue is great because it’s made with ingredients that you can always have on hand. It’s also good when made with beer, instead of wine. Try Brennan’s Cellars Pilsner.

Cook tomatoes and garlic in butter in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir together wine and cornstarch in a small bowl, then stir in tomatoes and simmer gently, stirring 1 minute. Discard garlic. Add cheddar by handfuls, stirring until completely melted. Serve in a fondue pot over a flame
