  • 200 grams cheese raclette cheese, semi-hard
  • 3 to 4 medium potatoes boiled
  • 1 jar pickles smaller varieties
  • 1 cup apple sauce to eat along with the potatoes and cheese


  • assemble the potatoes in a pressure cooker, and just cover with water.  Seal the lid, and when the pressure knob is raised, then set the timer for 8 min. Assemble in a basket when cooked, wrapped in a napkin to keep warm
  • plug the grill and set in the middle of the table.  Each diner should have 1 or 2 trays to put under the grill.  It usually takes a good 15 min. to warm up the grill.

  • assemble the cheese.  There are many assortments.  Some cheese is plain, while others have pepper corns or garlic, or herbs in the cheese. 
  • Start:  Put the cheese in the trays to put under the heat.  It takes about 5 min.  In the mean time, grab a potato, cut it up, and add a pickle or two, then when the cheese is melted, pour it over the potato.  Add some fresh ground pepper, and enjoy. 
    The grill on top is used often for sausages, or other types of meat to accompany the cheese.  We like to make a batch of crepes to cook after the cheese meal, to serve as a light dessert.  The choice is yours.
