We recently added a new kitchen appliance to our ever growing collection of tools in the form of a Tefal Fresh Express Fruit and Veg Slicer. We tested it once we got it with some apples as we couldn’t wait to get trying out the 4 attachments – 1 that slices, 1 that grates and 2 that shred. We were instantly impressed and have since been putting it to good use in the kitchen, none more so than our recent potato rosti creation which we are going to talk about today.
- 4 Large potatoes
- 1 Large onion
- 4 Slices bacon, diced
- 1/2 Chorizo sausage, chopped
- 2 Tbsp flour
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Drizzle of olive oil – grease dish
- Knob butter
Preparation time – 15 minutes
Cooking time – 45 minutes
Serves – 4 people
1. Prepare your ingredients
Before beginning, preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C Fan) and drizzle some olive oil into a roasting dish ensuring that you grease the sides as well as the base. Now you begin preparing your ingredients by firstly peeling the potatoes and cutting them into chunks before grating. We used our own home grown rooster potatoes for this rosti. As mentioned above we used the Tefal Fresh Express for this but you can use a standard grater for the potatoes. Next up slice and dice your onion and add it to the grated potatoes. To this you then add your diced bacon and chorizo, tossing well with your hands. Add the flour and seasoning and mix.
2. Assemble your potato rosti
Once you have all the ingredients mixed you simply transfer them into your greased roasting dish and top with a few tiny knobs of butter. Put this dish into the centre of your oven and cook for approximately 40 – 45 minutes until golden brown and crisp on top. The potato underneath will be soft and the flavour and juices of the chorizo will run through.
3. Serve and enjoy
Once your rosti has cooked, remove it from the oven and serve. You can serve the rosti as an accompaniment to a meal or with a fresh garden salad. If you’re not a fan of meat you can substitute it with some grated root vegetables.
