I was cleaning out a canvas bag and found this recipe tucked inside it. I have no idea of where I got it, but am posting it, as it sounds like a good way to make use of leftover ham. The US measurements are not precise, but close enough for this kind of dish. Use the converter if you want precision.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the potatoes and place in a colander. With your hands, squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can. Place the grated potatoes in a large bowl.
  2. Add the ham, cheese and chives to the bowl.
  3. Season with salt and pepper and stir until well combined.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. When hot, drop 1/3 cup portions of the rosti mix into the skillet.
  5. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden and crisp.
  6. Transfer to a platter and cover to keep warm, while cooking the rest.

Frustrating recipe - the Rosti kept falling apart in the pan, needed something to "bind" them more I think. Flavours great, but this was more hash than Rosti!

This recipe is a great way to use up your holiday ham! I used all the same ingredients listed, I guessed at the amounts, also and I diced the ham strips. But I kind of made little potato panckes (about 3" diameter) with the mixture, frying 3 at a time, and keeping a platter in the oven (on warm) for the cooked ones, while frying the rest. I served these with only applesauce as a side dish to them... and it was fantastic!. Family LOVED them. I still have some ham left that I froze, and I will definately be making these again! Thank you for coming up with a fabulous recipe. We truly enjoyed it. (Made for PRMR - Spring 2013)
