My easy swiss and gruyere cheese fondue recipe will give you the confidence to make creamy, smooth fondue! Make it for a party or just for dinner.



1 cup white wine

1 tsp garlic

8 oz shredded gruyere cheese

12 oz processed swiss cheese, cubed

1/4 tsp nutmeg


Place a medium-sized pot on your stove over medium heat. Add the wine and garlic and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5-7 minutes.

Siphon off about half of the wine and set aside.

Add the gruyere, about a quarter of the cheese at a time, letting it melt between additions. Stir regularly. Repeat with the swiss cheese.

Add the wine that was set aside a bit at a time until your desired consistency is reached.

Stir in the nutmeg and serve.


Serve with bread, soft pretzels, sausage, steamed veggies, and apples.
