12 potatoes, or more if they are small
1kg raclette cheese
6 slices ham
12 slices salami
12 slices mortadella
6 slices prosciutto
1 jar cornichons
1 jar small onions
Method Prep:20min › Cook:5min › Ready in:25min
Scrub the potatoes under water with a rough sponge, then cook them in boiling water for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on size, till tender.
Scrape the raclette cheese with a knife to remove any label that may be on the outside of the rind, but do not remove the rind itself - it gives a lot of flavour to the cheese! With a cheese slicer, slice the raclette about 5mm thick by about 5cm square.
Arrange the cheese on a plate.
Roll the ham, salami, mortadella and prosciutto slices, and arrange on a serving plate. Garnish with the cornichons and onions.
Just before dinner, preheat a raclette grill. Put the hot potatoes on a serving plate, and set around the grill with the charcuterie plate and cheese.
During the dinner, every guest places a slice of raclette cheese on one of the raclette pans, and places it in the grill to melt. Place the melted cheese over a potato, and enjoy with the charcuterie, cornichons and onions.
