    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    In Zurich, a German-speaking city, practically every bar and beer hall garnishes its big plates of meat with this kind of hash brown cake; it might be “cheese” or “onion” or “plain” Rösti, but you’ll always be happy to see it. Refrigerating the whole baked potatoes overnight makes them much easier to grate. Special equipment: an adjustable blade slicer fitted with julienne blade, a food processor fitted with medium shredding disk, or a box grater. Chill time is included in total time.
