I came across this recipe by attempting to make a hash brown, instead we now have these with our fry ups or just an egg and beans. This is a wonderful alternative to a hash brown and are very filling, so we usually have them as a brunch.
- 3 Med Potatoes
- 1 white onion
- salt and pepper
- handful of chives
- 1 handful grated cheese
How I made it
This is a really simple recipe to make, but a bit of practise will ensure that you get these perfect every time. It took me at least 4 attempts before I was happy with my creation.
- Boil the potatoes for 5-10 mins (whole)
- Take potatoes out of boiling water and leave to cool to room temp.
- Peel the potatoes to remove the skin
- Grate potatoes and place them onto a clean tea towel. Gently squeeze to remove excess liquid. This tip is absolutely vital as without this step you will end up with soft Rosti’s with no crunch.
- Put all ingredients into a bowl and mix with hands
- Create small balls of the mixture and flatten slightly.
- place into the frying pan on a low/med heat until golden, then flip until golden on the other side (about 4-6 mins on each side)
There really isn’t a lot of skill in creating the potato rosti’s it is just about making sure that you do every step and are able to work out when they are cooked just right.
The more you try this recipe the easier it will become and soon you won’t need to even look at a recipe to make them.
I serve these with a fry up instead of a hash brown, or even just sausages and beans instead of mash. This makes the meals different and more interesting.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know how it goes.
Much love xx
