  • 1 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 3 cup Swiss cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp, ground white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika


  • In a small, heavy-bottomed pot (cast-iron is best) bring the broth, lemon juice and ┬ápressed garlic to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, place the cheeses into a large Ziploc bag along with the cornstarch, and shake until the cheeses are well-coated (this is a great task for kids!)
  • When the broth mixture begins to simmer, reduce the heat to low, and add handfuls of cheese, one at a time, whisking the fondue after each handful until the shreds are completely melted.
  • Once all the cheese is well-incorporated, remove the pot from the stove and stir in the pepper and paprika.
  • Serve immediately with vegetables, fruits and bread for dipping!
