We actually ate these for breakfast. They also work as a side to a regular meal.
To make about 6 potato Rösti you need:
2 medium potatoes
Peel or do not peel the potatoes. It is up to you. Then grate them into a bowl. Add one egg, a good amount of salt and pepper, and enough flour to hold everything together. You really have to use your hands, mix it up, and decide if you need more flour or not. Do not add too much flour! It ruins the taste.
Heat a pan with about 1 Tbs butter on medium-high (our stove goes up to 9 and we used setting 7). You want the pan to be hot enough that the potatoes will get a nice brown outside, but not so hot that they burn before the inside is cooked.
Scoop the potato mixture and place in the pan in small groups. She makes patties, he says that to make a proper Rösti you can not make it perfectly round.
Cook for about 3 minutes or until a golden brown layer has formed. Turn and cook on the other side.
Eat plain or serve with your choice of topping.
She eats her Rösti with sour cream and Cholula hot sauce.
He likes apple sauce (she approves! Tasty!)
Or Nutella... (she says ewww!)
