If melted cheese on top of grilled vegetables and meat sounds yummy to you, than a Raclette grill party might be something for you. We have been enjoying Raclette dinners for years on many different occasions. It is great for any party. Oh, you do not know what Raclette is, here is a 101 on Raclette.
What is Raclette
Raclette is actually a cheese that in Switzerland and France was melted in front of a fire and then scraped onto dinner plates accompanied by potatoes, pickles, and dried meat. To be able to have a similar dish in modern day there is a Raclette Party Grill with small pans.
How to serve Raclette
For a Raclette grill party dinner you need a Raclette Party Grill with small pans. You will need as many pans as you have people. So everyone is able to fill their own pan with yummynes and melt it under the grill.
On top of the grill you can grill meat and vegetables as desired.
For the food the ideas are almost endless; choose whatever you or your company would like grilled and topped with cheese. The picture is showing a lady group party. Here are some ideas:
- Pickled beets
- Broccoli and cauliflower
- Mini smokies
It can be served with potatoes or toast.
For cheese you can go for the real Raclette cheese. I usually use Gouda, Marble, or Mozzarella. Cheese is by far the main ingredient, so you will need lots!
