Gluten Free Spinach and Leek Cheese Fondue

This week is all about easy holiday entertaining. I feel like the holidays are so hectic and busy; it makes a huge difference to me to have appetizer recipes that are quick and easy to put together. It lessens my stress load, which leaves me a much happier person.

Have you ever tried fondue? It is a hot creamy cheese dip that originated in Switzerland. You can dip all sorts of delicious things into the hot cheese like breads and vegetables.

For our holiday party, I made this delicious creamy gluten free spinach and leek fondue. It is full of gruyere cheese, one of my favorites.

Do you often have friends who drop by to say hello during the holidays? We do and we cherish this quality time with our friends.

Having ingredients on hand to make appetizers helps keep me prepared for any occasion. I thrive on making delicious appetizers that everyone at the party can enjoy.

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know I am all about easy recipes. This easy fondue recipe is no exception!

You can dip vegetables, or even this delicious gluten free baguette by Schar that I found at our local grocery store. Just bake it for 5-8 minutes and it gives you that amazing crispy outside, something that those who are gluten free often miss.

I also want to put an unsolicited plug for this fondue pot. Mine has lasted for years. My favorite feature is that I can adjust the temperature so I can use it for meats, cheese, or a creamy chocolate dessert fondue.

  14. When I was growing up my mom had a fondue pot. We loved it! How do I not remember to get one? I actually clicked on your link but it didn’t work. Let me know if you have a link i can use I may order my own pot. Love the idea of the adjustable temperature. Mom’s was rather difficult to heat properly if memory serves. This recipe looks so fun for appetizers at a party!

  15. This fondue sounds amazing. With spinach and leek this must be so tasty!!

  16. What fun and festive holiday party food Sandi!

  17. We made this for New Year’s Eve and it was fantastic! Honestly the best cheese fondue I’ve even made. Notes: there is no garlic listed in your ingredient list (luckily I had some on hand), you say “shredded” cheese in the ingredient list but cubed in the instructions (I used cubed), and the instructions say to add wine in both steps 4 and 5. I added it in 4 (used cooking wine but think dry table white might be even better). Ate with gluten free baguette, broccoli, and cauliflower. I repeat: YUM!

    • I am so glad you liked this recipe Danika. Thank you for pointing out the missing garlic. I don’t know how I missed adding that. I checked back in my notes and added that in. I also added shredded or cubed. Have a wonderful New Year :-).
