- 1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
- 1 cup Grüner Veltliner or other dry white wine
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss (emmenthal) cheese
- 1 1/2 cups shredded gruyère cheese
- 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- Freshly grated nutmeg
- Crusty French bread, cubed
- Bockwurst or other mild German sausages, browned and cut into bite-size lengths

- 1. Rub garlic clove around the inside of a 1-qt. fondue pot; discard clove. Pour wine into pot; warm over medium heat on the stovetop until bubbles start to rise.
- 2. Mix Swiss and gruyère cheeses with flour and dry mustard in a bowl.
- 3. Add cheese mixture to wine, a handful at a time, stirring gently after each addition until melted and smooth. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg and pepper.
- 4. Set pot over its heat source, adjusting so fondue barely bubbles. Arrange French bread, sausages, and pears alongside.
- 5. Scrape bottom of pot occasionally to keep fondue from scorching as you spear and dip bread, sausages, and pears.
