Halloween may be over, but it’s still Fall and we’re still obsessed with all things pumpkin around here. I may even be drinking a pumpkin spice latte as I type this. This Pumpkin Cheese Fondue recipe is a savory one – full of gooey cheese and delicious flavors!
Pumpkin Cheese Fondue Recipe Backstory
A few weeks ago I was shopping at Trader Joe’s with my Mom and we were buying a few pumpkins to make a big batch of my Roasted Pumpkin Soup. At the checkout, the cashier was chatting with us and being extra friendly. When she scanned our pumpkins, she asked us if were were having pumpkin fondue. Pumpkin fondue?! I told her I had never heard of that before, so she told us that all it was basically a pumpkin full of different cheeses and baked in the oven. Of course that sounds awesome to me!
We quickly headed over to the cheese section and picked up some Gruyere and Emmental cheeses. We decided to use one of our pumpkins to make pumpkin fondue that weekend.
These little pumpkins create a great vessel to bake and serve your cheese fondue in and it even cooks the pumpkin inside, so that when you scrap your cheese out, it sometimes gives you bits of yummy pumpkin. The spices and wine and honey give it a sweet but savory taste that’s so melt in your mouth good!
We served up this Pumpkin Cheese Fondue with sliced French bread, apple slices, sweet Gherkin pickles and different types of meat like salami and made a full meal out of it.
