Cheese Fondue Burger

Cheese Fondue Burger

Seasoned beef patties are grilled to perfection, dunked in a creamy Swiss and Gruyère cheese fondue and served on a toasted bun, garnished with sliced apple.


  • 4 (6 to 8-ounce) beef burger patties
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 medium Spanish onion, sliced
  • 1 whole clove
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) Riesling wine
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) Wisconsin Swiss or Emmentaler Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin Gruyère Cheese, shredded
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 burger buns, toasted
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored, sliced into thin rings


  1. Season beef patties with salt and pepper. Brush heated grill with vegetable oil. Grill patties 5 to 7 minutes on each side or to desired doneness.
  2. Meanwhile, cook onion and clove in olive oil in pan over low heat. Add a little water if onion begins to brown. Cook until onion is tender and water is evaporated. Add wine; cook until reduced by half. Stir in cream; bring to a boil. Slowly stir in cheese; cook and stir until melted. Season to taste.
  3. Place grilled burgers in fondue; let stand 30 seconds. Place burgers on bottom of toasted buns. Fan a few apple slices over burgers. Top with bun tops.
