Preparation in advance:

Cook the cleaned and unpeeled potatoes with salt and keep one day in the fridge.

How to prepare:

The next day: Peel the potatoes and grate on a large hole grater.

Heat a considerable amount oil, butter or margarine in a frying pan.

Fry the grated potato, while stir frying, brown in about 5-10 minutes.

(With optional chopped bacon, bell pepper and chopped onion photo recipe.)

When browned, push a little flat, cover the pan and simmer 20 minutes (without stirring) over low heat. Use a greased cover or plate to turn over the rösti (place the cover on the pan, turn upside down very fast so the rösti falls on the cover and slide it back in the pan again) and fry the other side brown photo recipe.
