As summer ends and it starts to get cooler, it’s natural to start craving a warm, comforting raclette dinner to lift your spirits. If you’re planning a meal with family or friends, check out these brilliant ideas to make your raclette night a memorable one.
Switch up the cheeses
Halloumi is a familiar choice for raclette dinners because it keeps its shape when grilled, but there are so many other options that it would be ridiculous to limit yourself. Grated cheese, such as mozzarella, cheddar or Swiss, is perfect for broiling with your favourite meats. Rich cheeses, like Gouda, Comté and aged cheddar, pair very well with charcuterie such as salami.
Mini-skewers – tasty and practical
Rather than spreading your sausages and pieces of marinated meat onto a baking sheet, put them on mini-skewers instead. It makes them easier to handle and easier to eat. Flip them over until both sides are browned to your taste, and you’re done!
Nice and easy pasta bar
Craving pasta? Cook up a good amount of your favourite noodles and offer your guests a selection of toppings, such as veggies, meats, seafood and sauces so that they can create their own custom meal. Don’t forget to grate some cheese to top it all off, it’s a raclette after all!
The best mini pizzas you’ve ever had
Add some Italian flavour to your raclette night with mini pizzas. Place pre-cooked pizza dough, a mini pita, or even a slice of bread in your raclette pan and add tomato sauce, pepperoni and your favourite vegetables. Garnish with a generous amount of grated cheese and broil until the cheese is golden brown.
The secret’s in the sauce!
The sauces you serve on the side can make or break your raclette. Impress your guests by offering a variety of sauces: creamy, sour, spicy and tomato‑based to add a burst of flavour to every bite.
