There’s practically nothing more satisfying than taking a bite of food that’s been smothered in melted cheese. Which is why we love having cheese curds in our poutines, or even just plain, old grilled cheese. And whether you’ve tried it or not, you’ll also love raclette — a block of cheese that’s melted until it can be scraped onto your plate.
But you don’t need to fly all the way to France or New York City’s Raclette restaurant to try it; not when you can buy your own raclette maker and heat it up right at home. Warning: this dish is not lactose intolerant-friendly.
- block of raclette
- raclette warming machine (get the NutriChef Raclette Maker for $80 on Amazon)
- Put your block of cheese into the raclette maker and turn it on.
- Watch in awe as the cheese starts bubbling up (try not to get any of your drool on it).
- Take out your trusty knife, and scrape the cheese right onto your food… or right into your mouth.
