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.
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.

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.
if you are trying to lose weight, this recipe is a recipe for disaster, frozen hash browns? whole egg? "fried". sorry, I m sure its delicious but maybe for a treat once in a while, if at all. Eat the asparagus, its good for you!
Flavor was okay, but it was very dry and in spite of using a non-stick pan, stuck to the bottom and fell apart when I tried to flip it.
I made 1/2 of the recipe, but used a full egg and I think the extra was necessary. The skillet was an 8" non-stick skillet, but the rosti stuck and broke apart when I tried to invert it onto the cookie sheet. I wiped out the pan, added the additional oil and did my best to slide the product back in. This serves two very nicely, but if I make it again, I will make 4 patties that can be flipped instead of trying to flip one big piece. My husband really liked the dish and I ate mine with my homemade cinnamon applesauce on top. YUM!
