6 Best Ingredients for a Raclette Grill

Ingredients that work the best for a raclette party.

Time for  raclette grilling! Don’t have a lot of experience throwing a raclette party for your friends or family? Not really sure what kind of ingredients work well together? We will tell you what ingredients to use and how to prepare them before serving.

You have to know that cooking on a raclette grill does not require a lot of skills. The most important part for a raclette party is to prepare the food that you have before you start grilling on the raclette machine.  The best and most common ingredients for this kind of event are cheeses, vegetables, fruits, meats, fish and potatoes. We will talk about them more in detail.

1. As you probably know the most important ingredient is the Cheese. You can read the article “10 Favorite types of cheese for a raclette party!”. For a raclette dinner plan on 7-8 oz of cheese per person.

2. Vegetables. Tender vegetables like zucchini or mushrooms can be raw when cooked on the raclette grill as long as they’re chopped into small pieces. For firmer vegetables, blanch them briefly, rinse them under cold water, chop and serve them.

3. Fruit. Cheese and fruit are a very classic and winning combination. Especially fruits that are slightly tart. Ideal fruits include apples, pears, plums, apricots, figs, mango and papaya.

4. Meat. For the best result you can marinate the meat before grilling. It will make the meat especially tender and it  will have more flavor. You can also serve precooked meat as well as finely cut meat so it will be cooked throughout in a short period of time.  Tip: if you are using a  hot stone (granite surface) the pieces of meat can be slightly thicker.  Typically for a raclette dinner people prefer white meat such as chicken or turkey.

5. Fish. Fish is ideal for a raclette dinner because it cooks very quickly. It is also better to use fattier types of fish such as salmon, catfish, mackerel or fillets with the skin on. Peeled or unpeeled shrimp are also delicious on the raclette grill.

6. Potatoes. Small new potatoes have to be boiled in their skin. It is very traditional to have potatoes for a raclette grilling. Plan on having about  half of a pound of potatoes per person.

Do not forget about side dishes. That could be a variety of fresh salads or different types of bread.

Sauces and dips are very essential for raclette grilling. You can either make your own sauce or buy different types of salad dressings. Tip: It is very easy to make dips. There are different dip mix packages from “Knor” you can get in any grocery store.

As you see, you can be very creative making a raclette dinner.

How to make Salmon taste delicious with the Raclette Grill

Delicate Taste of  Salmon with Spinach on the Raclette Grill

If you have a Raclette Grill you probably know that the secret of grilling is simplicity. There are a lot of ways of putting ingredients together on the grill.  It is good to know different recipes and different ways of grilling.  With Raclette Grill you can enjoy the process of cooking and the company especially  when you can surprise your guests with a new idea. Smoked Salmon with Spinach is the perfect idea for sea food lovers.  For 4(four) people you will need 12 smoked salmon slices, 200 grams (=0.44 lb or 7.05 oz) of light cream cheese (spreadable), one tablespoon of dried dill, 30 fresh spinach leaves and loaves of baguette. In reality you will not need the exact measurements because everybody’s taste is different. This is just for you to have an idea.

Slice the bread to the size you want and place it on the grill to make it crispy and warm. You can also bake or heat the bread in the oven if you like. Whenever you are done with the bread put it in the bread basket and cover it. While the bread is in the oven or on the top level of the Raclette Grill, mix dried dill with cream cheese and place it into an individual raclette pan. On top of the cream cheese add the spinach and let it grill for a few minutes. After finishing grilling serve it on the toasted slice of baguette and top it off with a slice of smoked salmon. You can now enjoy this tasty delicacy.

How to prepare a Raclette Party the right way

Hosting a Raclette Party

If you love to spend some quality time with your family and friends then Raclette Grill is something you can benefit from.  The whole idea of a Raclette party is to eat and cook together and have fun experimenting with cooking different ingredients. Raclette Parties create an atmosphere that connects people and lets them be themselves.  Really,  it is very easy to host a party like this. First of all, of course, you will need to have a Raclette Grill.  Second of all, you have to know that you don’t have to be a good cook. The secret of a successful Raclette party is to keep everything simple. Third, you will need to invite your family or friends to your Raclette party, which of course won’t be a problem.

The preparation for your Raclette Party actually includes some shopping and chopping.  The most common ingredients for a Raclette Party are cheese, boiled potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, corn,  spinach, bread,  all  types of sea food including canned fish, white meat, sausages, ham and much more. You can also use different kinds of sauces or dressings you like. Another plus is that you can also reheat cooked meat or meals such as leftovers.

Time for setting up the table. You have to place your Raclette Grill in the middle of the table. All chopped and sliced ingredients sit around the grill. If you have a big party it is more convenient to use small dishes for chopped foods and to use two dishes  for each ingredient,  so you can place it on both sides of the table.

Time to grill. This is going to be a very simple example. Preheat the Raclette Grill. Slice boiled  potato and put it on the top level of the grill. While sliced potatoes are getting crispy brown  you can put some cheese into an individual raclette cooking pan.  Put grilled potatoes on your plate. Pour the melted cheese over your crispy brown potatoes, season it to your taste.  You may want to let it sit for a moment because it is hot.  While you are preparing a new combination of toppings you can enjoy your company and sip your favorite drink.

Sometimes cheese gets stuck to a raclette cooking pan. You can scrape it off with a spatula that normally comes with a Raclette Grill  or you can just  use a piece of bread.

This is very easy! Instead of trying to please everybody and cook different things, Raclette Grill can cook everything to everybody’s taste. In addition the food that comes out of the Raclette Grill is so tasty and savory. You can be sure that all your guests will be fed and nobody will go hungry including kids. Everybody will be satisfied!!!

With the Raclette Grill you can keep  family dinner parties or friends get together dinner parties  traditional. It is so important  to have that personal touch with the people who you really love and care about.
