Gruyère: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Gruyère is ideal as a table cheese and for grilling and melting. Because it retains a smooth texture when melted, this is the classic cheese preferred in the preparation of both quiche and fondue. In fondue, it may be combined with other cheeses, such as Parmesan. Gruyère is also used for gratins—grated on vegetables or other dishes, such as potatoes, zucchini, or asparagus, and is the cheese of choice for soups, such as French onion. Served with fresh fruit, such as pears or apples, it makes an excellent snack or dessert.
