Expert Tips

In Switzerland, rösti means "crisp and brown." Rösti potatoes are made from shredded potatoes, browned on both sides and flattened into a pancake-shape.

Frozen shredded hash-brown potatoes can be used in place of the refrigerated shredded potatoes.

Serve these delicious potatoes with pork chops or steaks. At brunch, try them with turkey sauce patties.
