Home-made raclette bowls with wild mushrooms, lemon and capers

Raclette is a very special cheese of French and Swiss tradition. It's usually melted in large ovens and poured over onions and pickles on each serving plate. For a more classic take on the home-made version you should check out our older post here. This time, we felt like pairing it with wild mushrooms and some tangy lemons :). If you're a fan of melted cheesy goodness, the raclette is something you can't miss. 
Warning: don't be put off by the specific smell ;)

Last year: Banana bread with nuts, Tirolese spinach-cheese dumplings, Spinach and cheese crostini, The perfect fluffy fried bananas and Chinese fried rice with egg

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 350 g raclette
  • juice from 1/4 lemon
  • 50-70 g pickles (cornichons in our case)
  • 50 g wild mushrooms
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Chop up the onion and place it on the bottom of two heat-proof bowls:

Do the same with the pickles:

Start placing pieces of raclette on top. Alternate with a little lemon juice and layers of wild mushrooms:

Add some capers on top too and place in the oven:

Let them bake for 20 minutes. Take out and dig in! :)
