DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the potatoes in their skins for 20 minutes, drain and leave to cool.
  • Peel them and using a cheese grater, grate them into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with salt.
  • In a frying pan saute the bacon and onions and thyme.
  • Add mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until soft.
  • Combine with the potatoes and mix gently, taking care not to mash them too much.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and add 3 or 4 spoonfuls of the mixture (See cook's note at the bottom.)
  • Using a spatula, pat the mixture into a round flat cake.
  • Brown it over a high heat.
  • When the bottom side is cooked flip it over.
  • Repeat with remaining potatoes to make 6 cakes.
  • Put 1/2 tablespoon of butter and a slice of cheese on each cake and melt under a hot grill or broiler.
  • *Cook's note: We find that it's better to cook the Rosti individually using 3 or 4 spoonfuls to serve 1 person.
