No, not Fondue nor Raclette but Röschti is today’s recipe. You find it in every Swiss cookbook. Röschti is made from grated and panfried potatoes. There are lots of variations of it. Röschti with onions, with cheese, with bacon, with mushrooms, or all of these together.
I was making a plain Röschti today. So all I needed were 5-6 large potatoes. You can make Röschti with raw or boiled potatoes. I prefer the latter so I started off with peeling and boiling some potatoes.
Some people boil them first and peel them later. Peeling hot potatoes is messy and not much fun, that is why I do it the other way round. Tastewise I don’t think that it makes a difference.
When the potatoes were done I put them in cold water for a while to cool them down before grating them.
