  • 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
  • Optional: Cubed bread and assorted fresh vegetables


  1. 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).
  2. 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 and vegetables.
