Mixed greens with Mushrooms and Raclette Cheese

Mixed Greens and Mushrooms with Raclette Cheese

Every part of this dish seems to scream savory, sweet and earthy all at once. A perfect comfort meal for two with flexibility for greens used, mushrooms selected and a good swiss melty cheese. This weeknight dish comes together within 30 minutes but will taste like it has been cooking all day. While this recipe is fairly forgiving: skip the bourbon if desired, change up the cheese or reduce the butter, it may change the overall flavor, losing a bit of its magic. Pairs well with a Pinot Noir.

This crazy good recipe was adapted from Smitten Kitchen and makes an ideal weeknight meal for two.

  • Meantime, toast bread and cut into large bite sized pieces. Set aside.
    1 large thick slice of crusty bread
  • Add greens plus red wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon butter. Cook about 5 minutes for most cruciferous greens. If using spinach, add during end of cooking time as this will just need to wilt a minute or two. Gently mix in the toasted bread pieces then lay cheese slices over top all and cover for a couple of minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve immediately.

    2 big handfuls mixed greens

  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt was used to test this recipe.  Always taste and salt to liking.
