  • 4 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry riesling wine
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Sliced smoked sausage and cubed French bread baguette


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cheese and flour. In a large saucepan, heat wine and garlic over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan (do not boil).
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1/2 cup cheese mixture; stir constantly until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, allowing cheese to melt almost completely between additions. Stir in the sherry, lemon juice and nutmeg.
  3. Transfer to a heated fondue pot; keep fondue bubbling gently. Serve with sausage and bread cubes. If fondue becomes too thick, stir in a little additional wine.
