Favorite Things: Rösti

In honor of our dinner tonight, I present to you:

Rösti is a typical Swiss dish (although true Rösti does not come from a package) that is made with shredded potatoes. It is basically like hash browns. But the best thing about Rösti is how versatile it is. 

You can eat rösti as is: (just potatoes)

Have rösti with bacon:

Rösti topped with cheese:
Rösti topped with egg:
And the list goes on and on. I have even been served rösti topped with applesauce and then topped again with Swiss cheese. One of our most favorite rösti dishes is called "rostizza" and is only served at one restaurant way up in the alps. It is basically a combination between rösti and pizza. But for dinner tonight we made up our own rösti dish: leftover sausages from our BBQ last night, grilled onions and bell peppers and then cooked up a package of good ole rösti. Put them altogether and you have one fabulous dish!
