Berner rösti

    20 min

    Rosti is a perennial favourite, but what many don't realise is that there are many variations of rosti in Switzerland. In Bernese röschti the potatoes are grated coarsely. I always serve this with bacon.

    Serves: 4

    1. Coarsely grate the potatoes by hand or cut into thin slices. Mix with salt and bacon.
    2. Melt butter in a cast-iron frying pan, add the grated potatoes and stir several times so that the fat and the potatoes mix well.
    3. Fry well over a medium heat, turning repeatedly. Towards the end of cooking time push the potatoes together, increase the heat so that the bottom of the potatoes forms a crispy crust.
    4. Serve with the crust side up.
