A wonderful Swiss meal to be enjoyed with good friends...this is just one of many suggestions. From Dorothy McNett's Recipe book at www.dorothymcnett.com.
little potatoes, cooked
Cook the potatoes with their skins on. Arrange on trays that come with the Raclette grill, or on heavy oven-proof plates. Add the corn, onions, and pickles. Place a slice of the cheese over the top, and put under the hot element to melt the cheese. The cheese should melt over the other ingredients. Serve right away with hearty bread. Eat it while it is hot and melty, and it is not necessary to wait for everyone to get served with this dish. You can also melt a hunk of this cheese next to a fire, such as Heidi's grandfather did in the movie. Then you simply scrape it off with a knife onto a plate and serve with the same relishes. It is possible to do this under the broiler as well, but watch out because the cheese gets melted very quickly and you do not want to have it brown.
