A favorite experience for the Hill Team is Raclette in Switzerland.  I first experiencd in the mid 80s.  My experience was with using a Raclette Oven.  Here is  a different style that does not involve a Raclette oven. You will need some heat-resistant plates and basket plate holders. These work well to hold hot plates or you can use a cool second plate.





Bratkäse Raclette Style

1-1/2 pounds Switzerland cheese finely grated (use ½ Switzerland Swiss and ½ Natural Gruyere, or either one alone).

¾ cup sour cream

1 tablespoon heavy cream (optional)

Mix cheese and sour cream in a bowl. Add heavy cream if desired. Pack into crock, cover tightly, or place in a refrigerator container, cover and keep refrigerated.

For Bratkäse style, use heat resistant plates.

Put 4-6 ounces of Bratkäse mixture on plates and melt in the oven or under the broiler.

Serve with potatoes, fish, meat, bread, apples, or spoon over eggs or hot vegetables.
