    Similar to rösti, these potato cakes make a nice change from chips for a midweek side or can even be served with a fry up.

    These crispy potato pancakes are super tasty thanks to a little added ham and Cheddar cheese. Enjoy with some scrambled eggs or even some baked beans.

    These cakes are great for using up leftover cooked salmon fillet. Our salmon was cooked in the smoker the night before and worked perfectly for this. As salmon and sweet potato are both gentle flavours, I added 1 small chopped chilli (feel free to omit or alter amount to personal preference) and some fresh herbs and spices. We used gluten free flour when we made the cakes, but plain flour should work just as well. Serve with a cool, crisp salad and a chilled Chablis.

    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.

    As I was grating all the potatoes I thought to myself, is this really worth it!? But then I remembered - this is one of the best potato dishes I have ever had! I bake the rosti in the oven which makes it soft and creamy on the inside but crisp on the outside. I served this with balsamic, rosemary and tomato marinated lamb.
