In the past, the fondue recipes I’ve used with wine in them and too much Swiss cheese have not tasted good to the kids, although I enjoyed them. I found that substituting chicken broth for the wine works great. I also used 1/2 Swiss cheese and 1/2 Colby for a milder taste. Cheddar would work well too but Colby was what I had the night I made this. We like to dunk cubed bread, little sausages, cherry tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, etc.
I have an electric fondue pot so made mine right in the pot but you could easily make it in a pan on the stove and then serve in a regular Sterno-heated fondue pot.
Serve with whatever sounds good to dunk in melted cheese. We like cubed French bread, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, pepper strips, small sausages, and apples.
