"I haven't made this yet but it sounds delish. This is done on the BBQ but it could be done just as easily in the oven adjusting the cooking times."

  1. GORGEOUS! Well I am a lover of Raclette so this was a good choice to tag and make! I made these to take to a friend's house on Sunday and all the guests raved about them, so much better than the usual loaded potatoes. I used authentic French Raclette cheese and large bakers (baking spuds) - these were served alongside a Beef Daube for a perfect Autumn meal. NO photos I am sorry to say - I DID take my camera but with all of the crowd, did not manage to take a shot, NEXT time and there will be a next time I can assure you!
  2. I couldn't find Raclette here in my small town, so used Gruyere cheese. Much enjoye, scaled back for two. Thanks!
