Swiss Fondue

Updated on March 8, 2014
5 stars from 13 ratings of Swiss Fondue

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Allow your shredded Swiss cheese to soften a bit by allowing it to sit at room temperature for about a half of an hour.
  2. In a medium size bowl; toss the Swiss cheese with the flour, and set the bowl to the side.
  3. 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 ).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Stir lightly, and bring the mixture to a gentle bubble.
  7. While stirring gently add the milk, Kirsch, white pepper, and nutmeg.
  8. Pour the mixture from your saucepan into a fondue pot, and allow it to bubble gently over a fondue burner while serving.
  9. Dip your toasted bread cubes, and enjoy!

Quick Tips

  • 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.
