Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Mix Swiss and gruyère cheeses with flour and dry mustard in a bowl.

  • 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.

  • Set pot over its heat source, adjusting so fondue barely bubbles. Arrange French bread, sausages, and pears alongside.

  • Scrape bottom of pot occasionally to keep fondue from scorching as you spear and dip bread, sausages, and pears.
