Ellie gave me an early birthday present, a Raclette maker. If you are not familiar with this, it is an electric grill top that sits on the table. It also has little trays that go underneath the heating elements. The grill top is where you cook vegetables and meats, we cooked slices of bacon the other night, but you can do sausage or chicken, really whatever you like. The little trays are where you melt your Raclette cheese, we used Gruyere since we didn’t have any Raclette available. This is typically enjoyed on boiled potatoes. Now I realize you all aren’t going to rush out to buy a Raclette machine, but you can do much the same thing in the oven, it just isn’t as much fun:). So for this week you could roast up wedges of cabbage, that you toss in a bit of good olive oil and maybe some finely minced spring garlic. You could include halved or quartered turnips on the tray, also tossed with a bit of olive oil. Don’t forget to add a little salt and pepper, the Eatwell Farm Rosemary Salt is great for roasted veg. Gently boil your well washed potatoes. When they are cooked to tender drain very well, then put them onto a roasting pan, cover with a good melting cheese and put under the broiler for a quick minute or two, just until the cheese is melted. Make a fresh green salad for the side, and a little meat if you want, or skip it for a meatless meal. It won’t be as fun as having your family sitting around the table with your Raclette centerpiece, but it will be simple and delicious!
