Käseschnitte, also called croûte au fromage, is a melted cheese dish found throughout the German speaking Valais and the Bernese Oberland. Fresh bread is buttered, put in a pan and covered with fontal, or another, locallyavailable cheese and white wine.The whole concoction is broiled. Typically, a slice of ham and sometimes slices of tomato are under the cheese, but these are not always a part of the basic recipe.The Swiss eat kaseschnitte with a fried egg on top, adding cholesterol insult to injury. If you prefer your kaseschnitte straight, order it “ohne ei” (oh-nah eye).
