Congratulations on your 

Book Birthday, Krista!



As for today's recipe, Krista inspired that, as well. She once shared some great tips on making a delicious crispy rosti (also sometimes called potatoes rosti or rosti potatoes).


Rosti is a Swiss dish. Basically, it's a large potato pancake. It makes a fantastic side dish for breakfast or brunch. One big cake can be sliced into four or more servings. You can serve it plain or with toppings like sour cream and chives, or smoked salmon. You can even jazz it up with bacon and/or cheese. 

For this post, I used Krista's recipe from this blog, which you can find here. Then I snapped a few photos to show you how my rosti turned out.
