Preparation method

  • Put the unpeeled potatoes in cold water with 1% salt and boil for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the skins from the potatoes while they are still warm.
  • Cool completely in the refrigerator.
  • Grate the potatoes on a mandoline.
  • In a large pan, fry the bacon until crisp and then add the onion.
  • Add the grated potatoes and mix well with a spoon.
  • Shape the röstis coarsely by hand, or more neatly by punching out with a ring, and fry in the clarified butter.
  • As they cook, check regularly to make sure they do not stick to the pan.
  • When the bottoms are golden brown, turn and fry on the other side until golden brown and crispy all around.
  • Place on paper towels to drain any excess grease.

Serving suggestions

  • Ideal in combination with many dishes, such as baked ham with a blue cheese sauce.
  • As a component in a starter of smoked salmon, salmon roe and crème fraîche.
