Poor Man's Raclette

My friend Nicole used to live in Luxembourg, where she discovered this dish at a popular ski resort.   Later, she moved to London.  When I went to college in the Edinburgh, I used come to London and visit her flat.  We’d usually eat real raclette, which is a variation of fondue using a special type of cheese also called raclette, and where the vegetables and meats are also cooked right in front of you on a raclette griddle.  After one visit I went back to Edinburgh, hit up a vegetable sale at Lidl, and came up with a budget version.  

Poor Man’s Raclette

½ pound raclette (expensive and hard to get in the US) or emmenthal cheese (that’s Swiss cheese to US dwellers, you can also use cheddar)
1 bag small creamer potatoes
3 peppers
2 tomatoes
1 onion
Broccoli, zucchini, or some other easy to fry vegetable

Boil the potatoes until soft.  In separate skillet, fry the onion and peppers until browned.  Add the broccoli / other easy to fry vegetable and sauté.  Add the tomato.
