- 5 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 doz 1, cut into 1
- 1 1/2 cups dry white wine
- 1 Tbsp milk
- 1/4 cup Kirsch
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp white pepper
- paprika, optional
- Allow your shredded Swiss cheese to soften a bit by allowing it to sit at room temperature for about a half of an hour.
- In a medium size bowl; toss the Swiss cheese with the flour, and set the bowl to the side.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Align your French bread cubes on a baking sheet, and bake them for about 6 minutes (or until crispy and golden ).
- Heat your dry white wine in a large saucepan over medium heat just until tiny bubbles begin rising to the surface. Prior to the wine coming to a boil, reduce the heat to low.
- Stir in your Swiss cheese and flour mixture (a bit at a time) while stirring. Note: Allow the cheese to melt before adding more for best results.
- Stir lightly, and bring the mixture to a gentle bubble.
- While stirring gently add the milk, Kirsch, white pepper, and nutmeg.
- Pour the mixture from your saucepan into a fondue pot, and allow it to bubble gently over a fondue burner while serving.
- Dip your toasted bread cubes, and enjoy!
- If your Swiss Cheese Fondue becomes too thick; add a teaspoon or so of milk, and stir.
- Garnish your Fondue by sprinkling a little paprika over the top (optional).
- To change it up a bit try substituting broccoli and/or cauliflower florets for the toasted French bread cubes.
