Raclette zum Essen!

Instructional: How to do Raclette the Swiss Way.
(or at least how I think you do it... we have yet to do it with anyone Swiss. hehe)

1. Fire up the Raclette. Let it get nice and HOT, HOT, HOT!

2. Gather the ingredients.

Raclette Cheese. Small boiled potatoes.
Grilling meats. Little gerkins and pickled onions. Raclette seasoning.

3. Start grilling and put the Käse under the burner to start it a melting. Yummmmm... I actually put the raclette seasoning on before it goes under the heat, but you can do it when it comes out as well. Or both!

4. When the cheese is nice and bubbling, take it out and pour the cheese over the boiled potatoes or whatever else would be improved by a heap of CHEESE.

5. Rinse and repeat.
Ok, don't rinse, but repeat until all the ingredients are gone
or until you are too full to move anymore! :)
Enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Is that meat your eating with the raclette? And bell peppers?

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

You're not yet a purist ;)

...And you didn't mention the pepper, paprika and nutmeg, the essential raclette spices.

Also, you traditionally drink white wine (cold of course) and tea (hot) with it!
