Many of you find no time to cook dinner after long days at work, with kids or simply not fan of cooking. Sandwiches come to rescue the situation and satisfy your cravings; You can sup up any simple sandwich to become a consistent delicious meal. Not just that, it’s a pleasure to the eye also with all these colors blend.
All you need is the right and a smarter choice of pairing your sandwich ingredients. Today’s fourth option of sandwich makeover is Italian sub.
- Italian bread (or sub bread)
- Swiss cheese slices
- Salami, i chose the one with cracked peppers
- Turkey breast slices, i chose it smoked with herbs
- Lettuce, green leaf type
- Tomato slices
- Pickles (cornichon)
- Mayo – ketchup sauce
To build up your sandwich start by
- a layer of Swiss cheese, i used emmental slices, heat it in the oven to melt (optional)
- then a layer of turkey, as i mentioned above, i used the smoked one with herbs
- followed by salami, i like the one that comes with cracked pepper,
- onion, cut them rondelles shape
- lettuce, i used the green leaf one
- tomato slices, you can take a bit of its juice and seeds if you find it a lot juicy
- and pickles, homemade cornichons prepared by my mum
- Finally mix 1 tbsp of mayo with 1/2 tbsp of ketchup to spread it on the top layer of the bread to seal the deal.
You can serve it immediately or warm it a bit in the oven if you like the bread a bit crispy. With a side salad it makes a nice meal.

Raclette is a type of cow milk cheese, consumed in Switzerland and France. It’s commonly used for melting in small pans known as coupelles that are placed under a specialized grill looking like an electric table-top grill. Then the slices of melted raclette are poured over veggies, pickles, charcuterie and meat. Served with wine to seal the deal!
Throwing a raclette party at home is the most fun thing. Tomorrow is new year, and with kids outing became a bit difficult; We are hosting at home a raclette concept party.
Not going so much traditional, we are not just melting raclette, we got gruyere, mozzarella, gouda and brie. You can use any cheese of your choice that melts. As for the side ingredients with the cheese, you can go as much creative as you want; go for anything that pairs well with your choice of cheese.
My favorite raclette ingredients that i am serving :
- Veggies (fingerling potatoes, sliced courgettes, sliced aubergines, sliced mushrooms, asparagus spears, broccoli florets, sliced capsicum, onion rondelles and cherry tomatoes). You can precook them if you want to save time.
- Fruits (melon, strawberry and grapes)
- Pickles (cornichons, pearl onions, jalapenos and olives) you can add to this list anything pickled that you fancy
- Meat (strips of beef, bresaola, salami)
- Condiments (salt, pepper, basil, rosemary and oregano)
- Nuts (walnut), the crunch of nuts is a tasty contrast to the creaminess of cheese.
You can simply pour the melted cheese over these ingredients or include baguette slices.
If you want to end your dinner with a dessert, melt chocolate and marshmallows to satisfy your sweet tooth. With fruits you can take it to the next level.
Hopefully this post was beneficial to you whether it’s your first time to have a raclette or you are already a connoisseur. Enjoy it, nothing says happiness more than cheese 🙂
