Ham and Cheese Rösti

Recipe by ksduffster
READY IN: 25mins




  • Beat egg in a large bowl. Stir in ham, 1/2 cup cheese, shallot, rosemary, pepper, and salt. Add frozen potatoes and stir to combine.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • When oil is hot (test with a drop of water; oil should sputter, but should not be smoking), pat potato mixture into an even round in the pan. Cover and cook until browned and crispy on the bottom, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat.
  • Place a rimless baking sheet on top. Wearing oven mitts, grasp the pan and baking sheet together and carefully invert, umolding the rosti onto the baking sheet.
  • Wipe out any browned bits from the skillet.
  • Return it to the heat and add the remaining oil. Slide rosti back into the pan, browned side up.
  • Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese, cover and cook the second side until crispy and browned, 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Slide onto a platter and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Cut into wedges and serve.
