Author Notes

I lived in London, England for a few months a couple of years ago and while I was there I always haunted the Borough Market. All the food at Borough is amazing and blows most other markets I've visited out of the water. One particular stall warmed my heart and stomach regularly -- the Kappacasein stall (which I was sad to discover no longer operates there!). This shop set up a weekly stall offering two french classic street foods -- simply out of this world toasted cheese sandwiches, and plates of new potatoes, gherkins and onions covered in freshly melted racclette. If you plan to try this recipe, I would suggest FRENCH racclette rather than Swiss, in my opinion the flavors are quite different and the French is far better. —DUZE @BakingBackwards

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound firm new potatoes
  • 1 jar spicy baby gherkins
  • 1/2-3/4 pounds FRENCH racclette cheese
  • 1/2 jar pickled baby onions (optional)
  • 4 ounces ham product of your choice (bacon, prosciutto etc) (optional)
  • freshly cracked pepper to taste
  1. wash and clean the potatoes. Boil in a large pot of water until al dente so that your fork can just pierce them through the skin. Drain and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut into halves or quarters.
