If you like baked potatoes and tasty cheese you should definitively try this Raclette-Potato Recipe. It’s a Swiss specialty and I’m sure you will love it!
Here is what you need to get started:
- 8 middle-sized Potatoes (I would recommend sweet potatoes) Table salt or sea salt 400 grams of Raclette-Cheese (sliced) (you should be able to find it at your local superstore) 8 pickled gherkin cucumbers (sliced in halves – longitudinal) 16 Silver Skin Onions (from glass) Paprika (to season)
- Cook the unpeeled potatoes until they are soft and cut them in halves. Now put the potatoes onto a greased baking sheet (intersection up). Scatter some salt onto the potatoes Dispense the sliced raclette cheese onto the potatoes Put the pickled cucumbers onto the raclette cheese Now bake your raclette-potatoes for 12-15 minutes at 430°F / 220C° When the cheese is melted, take the potatoes out of the oven and put some silver skin onions onto the raclette-potatoes. Enjoy your Raclette Potatoes!
This can easily be served as main course along with salad.
When eating hot cheese like in this recipe, I always recommend drinking hot tea
instead of cold drinks. Your stomach will be grateful if you did.
