Another way to served potatoes.....not mashed or baked!

Today I asked my young jedi "cooks", to give me list of at least 15 ways to prepare a potato. I figured why not show them how to make them the Swedish classic rosti potatoes. It's so easy and convienient it it takes is a little time a patience.Basically, these are potatoes that are shredded and pressed into a flattened pancake shape while browning in the oven.

This can be served for any meal period for the day and it goes great with eggs, beef, lamb, pork and chicken. In this recipe I will use shredded hash browns, since many fire house and private homes do not have a grater and its one less setp to worry about.

Rosti Potatoes

1 1/4 lb. potatoes, peeled and shredded or use shredded uncooked hash browns
1/4 c. chopped onion
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. rosemary
3/4 c. shredded Swiss cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 350*F
1. Saute onions in buttered skillet.
2. Add potatoes, mixing with onions and press to form a "cake." Season with salt and pepper.
3. Cook until crisp, about 8 minutes per side.
4. Add Swiss cheese and rosemary, place in oven for 4 minues or until the cheese turns into golden brown.
5. Serve warm.
