Stuffed Rösti

Stuffed Rösti
Rösti is a Swiss national dish consisting of grated potatoes shaped into patties which are then pan fried. Traditionally, it is eaten for breakfast but is also commonly served as a side dish or an appetizer component. 
This dish -  as described above - is pretty delicious in itself, but I decided to play with it a bit and stuffed my Rösti with a herb cream cheese filling and baked it to eliminate some of the fat. 
The result? Yummy goodness! I served it as a side dish with BBQ steaks but you could also serve it for breakfast with some sauteed spinach and a poached egg (as an adaption of the eggs Florentine) or you could top it with smoked salmon and serve it as an appetizer.

Stuffed Rösti
Preparation time: 40 min
Yield: 6 Röstis
Level: Easy

  • 400 g Potatoes
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsle
  • 1 tsp of chopped basil
  • 1 tsp of chopped rosemary
  • 2 tbsp of grated parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp of powdered garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp of butter

Pre-heat oven to 400 F (200 C)

Start by grating potatoes and squeezing out their water. To do so, you can either press small amounts of grated potatoes with your hands or using a clean tea towel, place grated potatoes in the towel's center, fold it into a sack and twist it to squeeze out the potato water. Season grated potatoes with pepper and just a little bit of salt, then set it aside. 

Mix cream cheese, chopped herbs, Parmesan, powdered garlic and season with salt and pepper. 

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, form flat compact nests with half of the grated potatoes. In their center, place 1 tsp of the cream cheese mixture. Top each nest with a second layer of grated potatoes forming stuffed patties. 

Dot patties with butter and bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
