Badgers Cheddar and Ranch Fondue


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1 (1 ounce) package Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups shredded white farmhouse Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine


  • In a heavy, 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the tomatoes and saute, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes just begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the package of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix and stir gently to dissolve the seasoning mix.
  • While the tomatoes are cooking, combine the flour and cheese in a bowl and toss to coat the cheese.
  • Add the wine to the tomato mixture, stir once, and then add the cheese, a handful at a time. Heat and stir until the cheese is completely melted. Transfer to a fondue pot set over an alcohol or sterno flame to keep it warm. Serve immediately.

    Serve with:
    Crusty-hard peasant bread cut into 1-inch cubes, pita chips, bagel chips, or tortilla chips.

    This fondue can be prepared 1 day in advance. Allow the mixture to cool, transfer it to a covered container and refrigerate. Reheat in a saucepan over low heat and then transfer to a fondue pot for serving.
