Recipe Information

Yield:    4 servings
Cook Time:   30 minutes
Level:   easy

Ingredients

Directions

Method:
1 Boil the potatoes in their skins.  Drain and place in a napkin-lined bowl to keep warm.  Place the sliced Raclette cheese on grill pans/trays to melt under the grill, allowing each person to scoop up the cheese with the cooked potatoes.  Serve the garnishes in separate bowls for diners to help themselves.

Tips:

When calculating how much to prepare allow around 200 g (7 oz) Swiss Raclette cheese and 250 g (8 oz) potatoes per person. Note: A half-wheel (2.8 kg/6 lb approx.) Swiss Raclette cheese is the ideal party food and will serve around 14-15 people whereas a quarter-wheel (1.4 kg/3lb approx.) will serve around 7-8. Raclette machines can be purchased or hired. See Cheese Paraphernalia and Accessories for details.

Do not cut the rind from the Raclette cheese, simply scrape some off. This produces a crisp crust when the cheese melts.

Don't overcook the Raclette cheese or it will become grainy and the fat will separate.

Leftover Raclette cheese will keep for up to 8 days if covered in cling film and refrigerated.
