Raclette ideas, delicious recipes for your pans

I know full well that raclette requires a lot of preparation. Nevertheless, on occasions like Christmas or New Year's Eve, the question always arises as to whether we would rather fill the raclette pans or cook something special.

Raclette sounds uncomplicated. It is the same when it comes to serving and eating! Raclette is versatile and there is definitely something tasty for everyone. This also means that you can have quite a bit of preparation.

You don't cook all the food though. But you have a fewpotatoesTo pre-cook, you have to peel and cut. Maybe you even prepare spaetzle and pasta. Vegetables and meat must be cut into small pieces. Don’t forget fruits and herbs either.

Then the whole selection of dips you want to offer your eaters. Depending on the quantity and effort involved, you'll be in the kitchen for a good 1-2 days. OK, that's how it is for me. Maybe it's different for you?

But it's not just the preparations that are important. Also cleaning up afterwards. It's not just plates and cutlery. All the dip bowls, bowls and extra plates that you need for the whole meal also want to end up neatly back in the cupboards.

Don't forget the raclette itself and the pans. Luckily we have had a dishwasher for some time now. That makes it a lot easier. Until now, we only ever had potatoes with raclette. Plus cheese, various vegetables and meat.

Pretty boring in the long run, right? So far we've never had the idea of ​​trying something else. I think it's thanks to my blog that I now love trying out a lot of things and still want to try them out.

There are so many raclette ideas and recipes waiting to be tried. And I would like to introduce you to three new ideas that I have eaten here in this article.

  • The cheese spaetzle pan, which was a hit with us on Christmas Day.
  • The steak pan, which is prepared with pears and was even tried by my son. He doesn't like pears at all.
  • And the chicken curry pan, which went well with the banana curry dip.

Tipp:It can be very helpful for your guests if you write the ingredients for the menu on a card and place it in the middle of the table. At least it helped me a lot. This made it easier for me to put together the individual menus for the pans without forgetting certain ingredients.

The cheese spaetzle pan

For the delicious cheese spaetzle pan you need a few pre-cooked knöpfle or spaetzle, some grated cheese and homemade fried onions. When everything is warm, sprinkle some chives on top at the end.

Preparation of the fried onions

I also prepared the fried onions the day before. I peeled and sliced ​​4 onions. Then toss the onion slices in approx. 2 tablespoons of flour. A dash of olive oil and some butter in onePfanneLet it get hot and slowly cook the onions in it.

You have to make sure that they don't end up too black. This can happen quickly in the end. Place on a kitchen towel to drain. This way they don't stay so oily and become soggy.

The steak pan with pears

For a steak pan, take a few thinly sliced ​​beef steak strips and finely chopped pears. Gorgonzola should actually be added on top here. However, I don't like it at all. I used mozzarella and gouda here.

Preparation in the pan is quicker if you brown the meat on the plate beforehand.

The chicken curry pan

For the chicken curry pan, take some chicken fillets and season it with curry powder. A few tangerines and red onions on top – the chicken curry is ready.

Here too: Preparation in the pan is quicker if you brown the meat a little on the plate beforehand.

Originally I wanted to try a sweet version. A blueberry cheesecake pan for dessert would definitely have been delicious. Unfortunately I didn't have time for this anymore. But I will definitely do that again.

I discovered these raclette ideas and also the sweet versions on Meineküchenschlacht.de.

Have fun trying it out and enjoy it!

Kind regards, Claudi
