Skillet Raclette Recipe
Raclette is an Alpine cheese that’s traditionally heated next to the fire, then scraped off in layers onto new potatoes. For our updated version, we melt slices of raclette in a cast iron skillet, then scoop the bubbling cheese onto plates on top of cooked veggies and accompaniments listed below.
- 1 lb small new potatoes, boiled or roasted until tender
- 8 oz cornichon pickles
- 2 crisp apples, sliced
- 1 baguette, sliced
- 1 bunch broccoli, blanched
- 1 lb sliced Raclette cheese
- Grainy mustard and chutneys to complement the cheese
- Prepare all the accompaniments and place on a platter on your table.
- Put one layer of cheese into the skillet, about 1/2-inch thick, and heat over a medium heat until bubbling, or bake at 375° F for 10-12 minutes until bubbling.
- Carefully take the hot skillet to the table. Place the skillet on a trivet or hot pad and be sure to put a hot pad on the handle so no one touches it by mistake.
- Use a knife or spatula to scoop out the hot cheese onto each plate for your guests. When the cheese is gone, heat more.

“We enjoyed this as a simple and satisfying "indoor picnic" after christmas. no special equipment needed, just used our cast iron skillet. added some slices of holiday ham for mini open-face sandwiches alongside, otherwise kept it the same as pictured. very easy and light clean up after the excess of the holiday. may become a post holiday tradition!”
