Rosti for Breakfast

My favourite breakfast for a cold Sunday morning. Our boiler quit working overnight, but we lit a warming fire and ate rosti while we waited for the plumber to arrive.

Rosti is a national dish of Switzerland. Cooked potato is grated into an oiled pan and fried on both sides, then topped with a bit of melted cheese. Add a dash of salt, too. Potatoes do love salt!

This rosti was made with fingerling potatoes grown on my brother's farm, so it's good, cheap food, just like the old peasant foods of Switzerland where rosti began. Here's another version with bacon and scallions from Bon Appetit.
