Roasted Potatoes and Raclette Sliders

I have made a post about Raclette's in the past but I had to share again. My original post can be found here. Raclette's are from Switzerland but are used all over the world. They are known for melting different cheeses and allowing you to grill anything you choose on the top grill. I bought a stone raclette - the stone is on top.. there are 8 pans that sit below the stone top grill, and 8 small spatula's to scrape the melted cheese from the pans.

Tonight, we invited my brother over and made some sliders. I bought 3 types of cheese: Gouda, Monterey Jack and Vermont White Cheddar. We melted all 3 cheese in the pan and then placed it on top of the sliders. I made sauteed mushrooms and homemade fried onion rings (click for that recipe) for toppings. Also served these with Roasted Potatoes (recipe below).

The burgers cooked surprisingly well on the stone - only about 4 minutes on each side. I preheated the stone in the oven for 20 minutes, then placed it back onto the raclette and coated it with a little bit of olive oil. See pictures below!
