Ham & Swiss Rosti

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (40 votes)

Rösti is a traditional Swiss potato pancake typically served as a side dish but we added ham and cheese to transform it into an easy weeknight supper. Enjoy with steamed asparagus and chunky applesauce on the side.

One TB of oil for an entire

One TB of oil for an entire pan is not frying. Swiss cheese is typically a lower-fate cheese. If you buy (or make) hash brown that are ONLY made from potatoes, they aren't high in fat. It's all about portion control and serving this with fresh veggies instead of buttered toast, etc.

Under 300 calories, it is low

Under 300 calories, it is low calorie. There's not that much cheese, and it really isn't fried.

I would say it is definitely

I would say it is definitely low-calorie. Just because a food has cheese and potatoes does not automatically make it a high-calorie food. It is all about portion sizes. This dish is under 300 calories per serving so I would definitely say it is a low-calorie dinner option!

Great flavor! Even my ultra picky 16 month old ate this. You definitely need to use a nonstick pan (12 inch). I started out in a different pan and had to switch to a 10 inch nonstick because that was all I had and half of the rosti was stuck in the other pan. I had a hard time getting this to stick together, but I think it was all the pan issue. Would certainly make again.

My comment is for the person

My comment is for the person who thought this was not heart healthy. For,one, the cheese is part skim and it's only 4 oz which works out to be 1 oz per person. Also the recipe uses olive oil which is heart healthy... It's not going to clog up any arteries. Ham can be very lean so it is all what you make it. But still, I would say this is a heart healthy recipe. Why not. Just go ahead and enjoy!
