The Potato Rosti originally comes from Switzerland & there are many variations. Mine is simple with just cheese & spring onions but you can add whatever you like (e.g. bacon?) to make it your own! Serve for a satisfying brunch or lunch!
Make individual Rostis if you prefer!
Serves 4 Approx 30p per person
Prep time 10 minutes Cooking time 20 minutes
600g potatoes, grated & water squeezed out (use a tea towel!)
1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
150g grated cheddar
2 eggs, beaten
salt & pepper
Place the potatoes, cheese, spring onions & egg in a large bowl along with a little salt & some pepper, mix well.
Heat some oil in a frying pan & add the potato mixture.
Smooth the top with the back of a spoon & cook on a fairly high heat for about 10-15 minutes, then reduce the heat & cook until golden. (Lift the edge of the Rosti with a spatula to check).
To flip the Rosti over place a plate over the pan, turn it over & slide the Rosti back into the pan (be careful & get someone to help you if necessary!) & cook until golden.
