Roesti Potatoes With Zuricher

Roesti potatoes are known as hash browns in the United States. It is not the same thing however. Much care is taken over roesti in Germany compared to the hash browns here. You parboil the potatoes and let them cool. While they are cooling you cut a slice of smoked bacon into strips and you chop some onions. Let the bacon cook in the pan and add the onions cook until both are cooked. Grate the potato on the large side of the grater and add salt and pepper. I usually add a little garlic and chopped parsley at this stage. Cook until golden brown.
