On a Sunday, I combined a bag of fresh hash browns, Black Forest ham bits, cheese, two eggs, rosemary, salt and fresh ground pepper in a big plastic container. On Tuesday, I cooked it using coconut oil which I've been experimenting with. It didn't hold together well but was really good. When I took the leftovers for lunch, my office mate raved about how good it smelled. Next time, I'll use Southwest seasoned hashbrowns.
Ham & Swiss Rosti
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.

Hash browns burn some, but 1 egg is not enough to hold this together in a patty. Ended up with just loose potatoes and ham.
Used a non stick pan (no, actually two, because the first one got coated with cheese and potatoes that couldn't even be scraped off) along with the recommended oil, which did nothing to lubricate the dish and instead was sopped up by the sludgy 1/2 uncooked potato/ham mix. Such a greasy, nasty mess that I simply threw it out. I guess when this comes up on the "weight loss" meal plan calendar, order pizza instead. About as healthy, and much easier to serve.
When I first made this, I had trouble with the cake staying together and for awhile, I made it more as a scramble. But one time my husband made it, and he said he felt it should cook for 14-16 minutes a side rather than 4-6. Now that I do that, I get a lovely potato pancake! And what I love about Eating Well is that nothing is taboo. Potatoes, eggs and cheese are not catastrophic in moderation.
