Chef's Notes

Add smoked salmon to the plate for a traditional accompaniment.


  1. I loved this!!!!! Thank you for sharing, I rinsed the potatoes because of the comments and then I had to substitute a few things but all in all it was an amazing experience.
  2. Very starchy, need to soak the potatoes in water to draw out starch before cooking. More of a hash brown, Rösti is crunchy on the outside and soft and delicate inside
  3. Butter is not listed in the ingredients list and there is no specification of how much to use. I found 2 tbsp per cake worked passably for me but I also didn't have a large pan. Step 1 is poorly worded. Make sure to set aside half of ONLY the green onions and parsley into - Read more ...
  4. Loved this. I didn't have sour cream so I used greek yogurt with the mustard for the sauce. It was delicious. I also added cheddar cheese, and served with apple slices.
  5. Making this for a brunch side dish for easter. I tested it tonight and it's easy to make and tastes delicious! Simple and bursting with flavor the sauce on top is the perfect combo
  6. This potato rosti is absolutely delicious! My 12 year old found this recipe and made them herself! They are very easy to make and a light side dish that we served with stuffed chicken and salad. We will definitely make them again!
