A romantic dinner for two or Invite your friends over for a fun night around the communal fondue pot.
Several months ago I purchased my very first fondue pot! Dave and I have enjoyed several impromptu dinners where I throw a bunch of cheese into the fondue pot. This is the first fondue recipe I am sharing.
This sauce is really pretty special. And…maybe a bit weird for fondue. But you will love it! Promise! I don’t know how many fondue sauce recipes use the add-ins I have in here. I just put in a variety of our favorite things. That’s when I’m having fun. I like to play in the kitchen.
As a teenager, I ate fondue once in a while. Mom had one of those fondue pots with the little flame under the pot you had to light. With Sterno? I think that was it. The same little burners hobos (The first street people) used back in the day. We enjoyed those fondue dinners! The Fondue pot was a lot of trouble though, and difficult to operate, so we didn’t use it much.
My modern fondue pot is electric, and easy! So, when Dave and I have a busy day outside; I often start chucking cheeses in the fondue pot and make something up for dinner on the fly! So far, we have enjoyed everything I’ve made in there!
This sauce is low carb and not bad on the calories either. If you want to go really skinny on the carbs, don’t use bread for dipping!
Roasted Pepper Cheese Fondue sauce is wonderful over broccoli and sausages. Dave and I had it that way and we loved it. This recipe is Low sugar and gluten-free if you don’t use the bread!
Try it with pretty much any veggies or chicken or pork. It would work with beef too, but I think not as well for a flavor friend. I might be wrong. Let me know if you prove me wrong. I’d love to know what you do with it! 🙂
This sauce is chunky, filling and satisfying. The bacon adds so much flavor! I used our roasted red peppers from last years garden. I have a bag of roasted peppers in the freezer (several actually!). Our homemade Sun dried marinated tomatoes are WONDERFUL in this! Any jarred Sun Dried tomatoes will work as well.
I made another roasted pepper sauce last summer with fresh roasted peppers. Go to that post if you need help with roasting fresh peppers. I tell you how in that recipe.
I’m enjoying how easy dinner can be for just us two. All the kids moved out this last year. Dave and I can make a meal out of this sauce and have leftovers! Love that! I just need to find something to dip the sauce in. Get your fondue on!!

Roasted Pepper Cheese Fondue Sauce Recipe:
This sauce is great leftover too. It will solidify when stored in the fridge. I mean SOLID. So, when you reheat it;(I used my microwave) stir it up. If it doesn’t loosen up as much as you prefer, add a bit of liquid and stir it some more. Reheat and stir it until you like what you have. I used a little heavy cream to loosen mine. Milk or even broth or water would work as well.
Here’s how I made Roasted Pepper Cheese Fondue Sauce:
- Warm the fondue pot to medium low
- On medium heat cook the bacon in a skillet until done.
- While the bacon cooks, Prepare the cheeses by cutting to size.
- Add cheeses to the fondue pot with the chopped roasted peppers and dried tomatoes.
- Stirring occasionally, cook the bacon and melt the cheeses.
- Now add the bacon into the fondue sauce and melt until it can be stirred into a sauce.
- Season with the seasonings to taste. Enjoy!
