This week's easy-to-make recipe is for potato rosti, sent to us by Helen Thomson.


About 3 medium potatoes peeled and grated
Cup of grated tasty cheese
Pinch of cayenne pepper


Put potatoes on tea towel and squeeze out liquid. In a bowl put potatoes, cup of grated cheese and pinch of cayenne. Mix well.
Line baking tin with baking paper.
Drop small spoonfuls of mixture on tray.
Put in to pre heated oven,180 degrees.
Cook until golden brown and potatoes are well cooked.
Take out and let cool.

Top with anything you like. I like sour cream, smoked salmon and lemon zest.

Rosti freeze well. Layer between paper towels. When you want to use them take straight from freezer to oven, 180 degrees.
Takes about 5 minutes to heat through. Be careful not to burn.
As they cool they crisp up.
