Swiss Cheese Fondue

As cold winter blows outside, our Test Kitchen home economists suggest warming up with this rich and creamy fondue. Don't be surprised when the pot is scraped clean!
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    about 4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • 2 cups white wine, chicken broth or unsweetened apple juice, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 7 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Cubed French bread

Directions

  • Rub garlic clove over the bottom and sides of a fondue pot; discard garlic and set fondue pot aside. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, bring 1-3/4 cups wine and nutmeg to a simmer. Gradually add cheese, stirring after each addition until cheese is melted (cheese will separate from wine).
  • Combine cornstarch and remaining wine until smooth; gradually stir into cheese mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and mixture is blended and smooth. Transfer to prepared fondue pot and keep warm. Serve with bread cubes.

    Not happy with this recipe - the cheese seized up and was basically unusable. It spoiled out fondue night!
