Think outside the box and reinvent brunch with… a breakfast raclette! Serve all ingredients around the raclette pan for a shared breakfast.
To cook on the pan:
- Bacon-wrapped potatoes
- French toast slices
- Breakfast sausages or thick slices of ham
To cook in the cups:
- Scrambled eggs or an omelette made with goat cheese and herbs, mushrooms and brie, or any other mouth-watering combination
- Thick pancake batter to pour over berries
- Pieces of bread or croissant topped with ham and cheese
Try fresh fruit, yogurt and granola to add some balance. You can’t go wrong!

Lunch often takes a back seat at the cottage, especially after a huge breakfast or on days packed with winter activities! Keep it simple with a warm soup, macaroni and cheese or a gratin prepared in advance. Or share a meal consisting of salads and an array of cheeses, deli meats and raw vegetables for everyone to enjoy.
