Recipe for Faux Fondue. This dip has many of the same flavors as fondue, but it can be kept warmer for a longer period without reservations.


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • What to Dip:
  • baguette slices
  • broccoli and cauliflower florettes
  • carrot and celery sticks
  • cherry tomatoes
  • cucumber slices
  • zucchini slices
  • cooked tiny new potatoes


  1. Makes About 3 Cup
  2. 1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F.
  3. 2. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Removed from the heat and stir in the brandy.
  4. 3. Mix the mayonnaise with the Swiss cheese and Parmesan in a medium bowl. Stir in the onion. Transfer to a heatproof 1 quart dish. (The dip can be prepared up to 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated. If it is chilled, increase the baking time accordingly.)
  5. 4. Bake until the dip is bubbly -- about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
