A New Year’s Day Swiss Raclette
Thursday 17 March 2016 — Category: Cooking & Food
OK ... I know it’s Saint Patrick’s Day and not New Year’s Day, but such is the situation with my humongous, horrible backlog of photos! I’m trying to dig my way out as fast as possible, but still it is slow going.
As I shared on New Year’s Eve, a Swiss raclette grill is a wonderful piece of equipment for cooking a number of special, delicious meals right at your dining table. On Christmas Day, we used it for a ten-meat grillade.
You can also use the grill for non-cheese dishes, like roasting veggies and meat on the top, as I have already mentioned. Years ago my family and I started making mini pizzas in these trays. The raw dough and all of the toppings are in bowls on the table, and each person can build as many custom little pizzas as their stomachs can hold. It is a truly scrumptious and fun way to have a long meal together.
Hopefully you start to get the idea that the sky is the limit when it comes to ways to enjoy a meal by cooking the food at your table with a raclette grill. Let your imagination run wild, and your taste buds will be rewarded!

Zum Raclette passen alle sauer eingelegten Gemüse. Du kannst aber auch Salate dazu machen. Wir mögen gerne dünne Scheiben Speck, Zwiebeln und Walnüsse. Dazu dann Cornichons, eingelegte Rote Beeete Kügelchen, Maiskölbchen und Perlzwiebeln. Das passt sehr gut zu dem Käse. Meine Söhne essen auch gerne Schinken und Ananas zum Käse. Ich denke da sind der Fantasie keine Grenzen gesetzt. Das ganz klassische Raclette besteht aus Raclette-Kâse, Pellkartoffeln, Cornichons und Perlzwiebeln. Ich habe mein erstes Raclette als Kind in Sass Fee in der Schweiz gegessen.

Here is a translation of Bobica’s German comments:
All types of pickled vegetables, as well as salads, go well with raclette. We like thin slices of bacon (pancetta), onions and walnuts. In addition, cornichons, pickled beets, baby corn and pearl onions. These go very well with the cheese. My sons also like ham and pineapple. I think there are no limits to the imagination. The classic raclette consists of raclette cheese, new potatoes, gherkins and pearl onions. I ate my first raclette as a child in Sass Fee in Switzerland.
