Ham & Swiss Rosti

March/April 2007, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (38 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.

"It is delicious, but why on earth is it classified as "low calorie"? Cheese melted into potatoes and fried in a pan? That doesn't count as low calorie-food, sorry :) Quite enjoyable nonetheless! "

this sounds great i can't wett to try it


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!
