Feta and Ricotta Cheese Fondue Recipe

This quick and easy feta and ricotta cheesefondue has a Greek flair. You may substitutefontina cheese for the feta and/or cottage cheese for the ricotta.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley, minced (optional)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese


Melt the butter in a heavy 8-inch skillet or a 1 quart saucepan over low-heat. Add the fetaand ricotta cheese, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, and mashing the cheeses slightly, until they soften and begin to bubble - about 5 minutes.

Stir in lemon juice, and garnish with the parsley if desired. Serve at once; as the fonduecools, it loses flavor.

Variations: Substitute fontina cheese for the feta cheese or you can substitute cottage cheese for the ricotta. You can make both of these substitutions.

Yield: 4 servings
