About this recipe: This recipe is an adapted version of the classic Swiss potato rosti. Grated potatoes are pan-fried with egg, cheese, garlic and onions to form one big rosti. Serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, egg, cheese, flour, garlic, onion, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Swirl the pan to coat the surface evenly with oil. Transfer potatoes into the pan, pat down evenly and cook for about 15 minutes over high heat.
  3. Reduce to low heat and continue to cook until golden brown. Flip the rosti and cook until the other side is tender and golden brown. Turn out onto a serving plate and serve hot.
