About this recipe: Transport yourself to the Swiss Alps with this traditional raclette spread. Easy for entertaining, you only have to place the charcuterie on a serving plate and cook the potatoes, then the rest is done at the table.


Serves: 6 

  • 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

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Arrange the cheese on a plate.
  4. Roll the ham, salami, mortadella and prosciutto slices, and arrange on a serving plate. Garnish with the cornichons and onions.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
