Swiss Chard Baked with Frankfurter and Gruyere

There’s no point pretending this is a dish designed with the dieter in mind, but it certainly hits the spot.

Preparation Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 30 min

Serves: 4

You will need:

  • 10 Swiss Deli Continental Frankfurters (or other cooked emulsified sausages such as vienna or kabbanos)
  • Bunch of Swiss chard weighing around 500g
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons French mustard
  • 6 medium potatoes, sliced and boiled for around 20 minutes until soft
  • 250ml crème fraîche
  • 150g Gruyère cheese, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

2. Wash the Swiss chard and blanch it in boiling water for a couple of minutes, then chill under a cold tap and cut into manageable pieces.

3. Mix the butter and mustard with the warm potatoes, then transfer to a medium-sized oven dish with the Swiss Deli Frankfurters, chard, potatoes, crème fraîche and most of the Gruyère.

4. Season with salt and pepper, mix together loosely and top with the remaining grated Gruyère.

5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until crisped, then serve immediately.
