No one can resist a soft, golden, crusty baguette on any given day. Now imagine filling a toasty baguette with melted cheese on a chilly winter evening. The culinary outcome? C’est magnifique!

If you really want to go the homemade route, baking your own baguettes is a satisfying option along with trying these fondue recipes at home.

How to Make Hot Pocket Baguette Fondue

Simply put, a hot pocket fondue is a petit baguette, sliced in half with the inside of each half of bread hollowed out. The bread is then warmed in the oven and filled with melted cheese.


  • 2 small baguettes

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 2 tablespoons white wine

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 12 ounces grated cheese


Step 1: Prepare the baguettes

Cut your baguette loaves in half, then hollow them out using a fork so you have a nice pocket in the middle of your baguette. Warm the baguette halves in a 350°F oven for a few minutes.

Step 2: Mix up the cheese filling

Either grate 12 ounces of cheese or use your favorite store-bought shredded cheese. Babs grates up some Grand Cru in the video, but any good melting cheese will work. Toss the cheese with two tablespoons of flour and set aside.

Step 3: Add the lemon juice and white wine

Spray a medium-sized pot with non-stick cooking spray. Cut the garlic clove in half and rub the inside of the pot with each half to impart some flavor. On low to medium heat, add a tablespoon of lemon juice and two tablespoons of white wine.

Step 4: Add in the cheese

Begin incorporating your grated cheese into the pot, little by little, while continuously stirring.

Step 5: Time to get filling!

Once the cheese has a good melted consistency, spray your ladle with non-stick spray and fill a baguette half with melted cheese. Wrap a cheese-filled hot pocket in a mini-towel or mini-oven mitt for your “pocket” portion of the winter snack!

Step 6: Enjoy!

Allow the cheese a moment to cool and enjoy your first hot pocket baguette fondue!
