Fromage Fort

This Fromage Fort is the perfect appetizer because it lets you use up all the leftover cheese and wine you have from the rest of the Thanksgiving recipes you are making (plus it's cheese and wine - how could it even get any better than that?).

  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 8 oz [230 g] assorted pieces of cheese (cut soft cheeses into small pieces and coarsely grate hard cheeses)
  • 1 Tbsp butter , at room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp white wine
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Toast or crackers for serving


  1. With the food processor running, drop the garlic into the feed tube and process until finely chopped. Add the cheese, butter, and white wine and process until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper (the amounts will depend on the types of cheese you use).
  2. Serve right away on toast or crackers, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week (it will harden a bit in the fridge, so bring it to room temperature before serving).
