Potato and cheese rösti. Recipe
As I mentioned yesterday, my mother, seeing that my potatoes were spoiling in the pantry, gave me a wonderful recipe book with potatoes that I decided to release with this recipe for potato and cheese rösti.
Although it is a bit laborious to prepare, the rosti is a very tasty and light dish, ideal for a lunch or as a garnish for meat or fish. By adding cheese, you change the flavor of the traditional potato rösti for a more intense and varied one.
Ingredients for 2 people
2 large potatoes (450gr), 1 small onion, 50gr of Emmental cheese, 15gr of butter, a handful of parsley, oil, salt and pepper.
How to make potato and cheese rösti
He who warns is not a traitor; This potato and cheese rösti recipe is neither as quick nor as easy to prepare as it sounds. Between whistles and flutes, you spend at least three quarters of an hour in the kitchen, and that is still a lot for a light dish or garnish that will not satisfy the appetite of the hungriest.
The most time consuming is to prepare the potatoes, because before grating them it is necessary to cook them for 10 minutes in boiling water and then let them cool to be able to peel them without burning our hands.
Once we have the grated potato, we mix it with the onion, cheese and parsley that we will have previously grated, also creating small pancakes of about 10-12 cm in diameter.
Then, in a frying pan with a little oil and the melted butter, we brown them on one side over high heat for a minute and then lower the heat to cook them for 5 or 6 minutes on each side.
We can serve it alone or decorated with a little spring onion and natural tomato, it is also a perfect garnish for both meat and fish.

Despite being a vegetarian (ovolatile) recipe, the potato and cheese rösti is a mouthful with an intense and varied flavor. The cheese mixes very well with the potato and onion, giving each other alternatives on the palate. Ideal for a lunch or as a starter, although it is a bit too entertaining to make for an emergency.
