- Hey guys, so today I'm gonna show you how to make a potato rosti. Which is usually a favorite in Switzerland or in the Alsace part of France. It's absolutely beautiful and you can have it for breakfast every day. So, we're gonna start off by just chopping up some bacon. I've got about three strips here. We're gonna go ahead and throw that into a pan here. I just wanna get that nice and crispy. While that's going we're just gonna go ahead and chop up one half white onion. I just need it to be finely minced. Now the way I'm doing my rosti today is actually not traditional at all. Just because I like to add different types of flavors to it and everything. So we're gonna go ahead and throw in our onions with our bacon that should be crisping up nicely. We just want those onions to kinda sweat out and give them a beautiful flavor. To that we're gonna add a little bit of my spring onions. Here I'm gonna use mostly the white parts. And I'm gonna keep the green parts for later to put them right on top. I've got one bowl here what I'm gonna do is go ahead and grate my ready cooked potatoes. About one third of the amount of potatoes that are in there we're gonna equal it with some cheese. So this will really help just bind everything. It will also release a lot of fat into the pan and all that flavor's gonna come from there. And then finally, just two pieces of garlic. My bacon smells just about done so we're gonna go ahead and toss all that into our potatoes here. Season the whole thing with a little bit of salt and some black pepper. Once all that is properly mixed we're gonna go ahead and get one pan nice and hot with a little bit of oil, tad bit of butter. I don't want to burn it so we're really gonna start at a very low fire. To properly shape it you wanna just slightly mash things together that's so they stay together in the pan. And then we're gonna use our hands just to help us make a nice complete patty out of it. Once one side is nice and brown we can go ahead and flip it. And we're looking for that nice golden crust like we have here. Two minutes on this side, just for that cheese to really just melt through beautifully. I'm gonna get my plate out and then we're gonna go ahead and place our rosti right on top. And that is so gorgeous. You can see all that cheese is just oozing out of it. And then we're just gonna top it off with just a little bit of vegetables. So I got some spring onions and some parsley. And that's how I make my version of a delicious Swiss style, Alsacian syle rosti. This is seriously one of my favorite dishes. And it's one that reminds me of my childhood so much because potatoes was everything I ate when I was younger. Nice big bite. You have to try that. That is delicious.
