    MarieRynr's Note:

    In Switzerland, rosti means "crisp and golden." The word has become symonymous with the country's famous potato cake. This potato cake makes a delicious cushion for ribbons of smoked salmon and lightly scrambled eggs. Simpley finish with a sprinkling of capers, diced red onion, chives and dill. This dish is fit for a king's breakfast!

      This made a fabulous brunch! I used freshly smoked trout instead of salmon and cooked the rosti in ghee, otherwise made as stated. I will use clarified butter from now on when cooking rosti or any type of hashbrowns. It was crisp and flavourful. Perfect combination of simple ingredients. Thanks MarieAlice!
