I tried this for the first time last summer in Switzerland and fell in love! It is delicious!! I know they sell Raclette pans but this is a version that's easy to do at home with the equipment you already have. Notes: Any smooth-melting cheese - cheddar, fontal, fontina, gouda, gruyère, jack, Swiss, taleggio, or teleme, even brie - can stand in for raclette. You can bake or boil potatoes.
