For the pleasure of the taste buds

Enjoying "Cheese Crisp" in the mountains, in the cold, on the terrace and watching the sunset, it is truly a pleasure! 

On a cold winter day or late at night in summer in a garden, what could be better than to treat yourself to a "Cheese crisp"?

Cheese Crisp Recipe


Serves 4

  • 4 large slices of bread (1 good centimeter thick)
  • About 1 cup of grated cheese (Le Gruyère AOP, or Appenzeller®)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of wine
  • Pepper


Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Lightly toast the slices of bread in the toaster.

Peel and crush the garlic clove or cut it into small cubes.

Arrange the slices of bread in a large baking dish. Drizzle them with the wine, add the garlic on the slices.

Arrange the cheese on the bread and bake for 5 to 10 minutes. When the cheese is melted, it's ready! Pepper once on the plate.

Variation: add a cooked egg to the pan on top.

Another variation: add raw ham, peeled tomatoes.

Serve with pickles, onions, and a slice of ham for example.
