Not really rosti or raclette...

What to eat when spouse and kid #1 aren't home, and kid #2 is sick and only wants canned chicken noodle soup? I firmly believe this is fondue, as well as raclette weather, but since I didn't have all the necessary implements or ingredients, I tossed potato chunks with olive oil, salt and pepper, roasted them, then broiled with grated Gruyere, accompanied by salad with garlic vinaigrette, apple slices and Sauvignon Blanc. Long day at work, whew. Greg's in Cordova for the week, but is happy because the cabin he's renting has a barbecue, and he's marinating London Broil for tomorrow night, red wine, mustard, steak sauce and salt and pepper.

You had potatoes and Gruyere, that would have been enough for me to plug in the raclette grill and have a slightly modified raclette dinner. Have you tried apple slices with a bit of Gruyere molten over it? And the wine was right as well...

Or did I totally misunderstand and that is exactly what you did, use the raclette grill for this meal?
