Well, I guess it does depend on the cheese. Maybe Swiss Cheese, but I haven't had it in years.
Pssst... "Swiss Cheese" doesn't exist over here! Just like English muffins don't in England.

If you can find them, some standard Swiss cheeses to try are Emmentaler, Gruyere and Appenzeller. Emmentaler has holes and is the closest of them to the "Swiss Cheese" you're used to.

Is Betty Bossi actually a real person?

I just presumed she was another Betty Crocker type of thing...

Probably one of the easiest dishes to make is the "Züri Geschnetzeltes" with Rösti (from Zurich in the German part of Switzerland):
I often make the Geschnetzeltes using chicken (veal is very expensive in the States) and serve it with either rössti or noodles. Great hit with my friends who have not been to Switzerland and do not know the original.

It is very easy to make. I was planning on a simple sautéed chicken breast tonight, started thinking of a sauce, and went out to buy the shallots, sour cream (I use it rather than cream) and mushrooms.

Don't you actually mean "chicken is very cheap" in the States?

About time too. Something else that is completely useless that I can recycle.

Save the planet.

I know, i know, I have been to all the dinners in the mountains where these dishes are served. The bowls themselves are deformed by the same food being placed in precisely the same, place, for centuries.

Bratwurst, onions, sauce and chips. Mmmmmm. That I do like. I will keep that 1 page in the book.

No, veal is very expensive in the US compared to here (and most of the EU).

Yeah, sorry, you're right: chicken's cheap and veal is incredibly expensive:

239 USD for 4 x 12oz veal chops.

Go to Denny's, order has brown potatoes, and one sunny side egg on top. Voila, Roesti Spiegelei!
