Yum...potatoes and cheese! What's not to love? Stacking the layers made me worry the middle wouldn't be done and the outside would be too brown, but I lowered the cooking temp and it turned out beautiful. I grated some onion and minced some garlic and threw that in with the potatoes....sorry, I'm a southern girl! Made for ZWT7.

This was delicious. I've made rosti before but they are usually too well done and dry for us. This one worked great by steaming them while browning. They were moist and wonderful. Thanks Linky for sharing such a nice winner. Congrats again on your 3rd (!!) football win this season.

Like others stated, whats not to love, potatoes and cheese, delicious!!! I cheated and used "Simply" hashbrown potatoes, so much quicker/easier and did scale it back for 2 servings. I used my individual omelette maker, which is a 2 sided pan with a locking mechanism on the handle, so I just flipped the pan to cook the other side. The cheese melted perfectly and the crusts were nice and crisp. I served this with some smoked sausage and fruit for a wonderful lunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats on the football pool win!!!! :)
