Roesti you mean?

Bratwurst, onion sauce, Bratensauce, cream sauce with meat (Rahmschnitzel or Geschnetzeltes an Rahmsauce), Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, etc...

Typical here would be geschnetzeltes (beef in a cream sauce). They go quite well with anything in a cream sauce, but also with sausage or just a fried egg.

There are various types of Rösti, one with bacon chunks and cheese is a meal on its own.

Geschnetzeltes can come from pork, chicken, beef, veal, turkey... in my experience the most often used is veal or pork. ymmv of course

Re: Rostie

Make the Rösti with grated onion and caraway. Add sautéed apples (not apple sauce!) on top.

Or if you are a purist, make plain Rösti and sautée the apples with onion and caraway.

Heavenly after a day spent hiking.

(OH likes a bit of Speck added into the Rösti as well, but that has to be earned by a seriously strenuous hike.)

Add caraway and you can have my whole dish. Caraway and I don't mix.
Replace caraway with bacon and you can give me yours!



Homemade Rösti is always better than the store-bought versions, but a huge hassle to make.

From the way the OP wrote it I presumed he didn't have umlauts on his keyboard, so wanted to give him a type-able solution

Boil potatoes, allow to cool, peel, grate. Cook in frying-pan.

Is that really such a huge hassle?

Ah yes, but it is not only the umlauts, there is also an extra 'ch', which is natural because it is a Swiss dish. . The extra 'e' at the end is omitted.

Re: Rostie

I like the inside moist, so if it's gonna be a thin one I add grated carrots, also makes it a bit sweeter.

Had to google that. I go to bed ever so slightly less stupid tonight

Well, if one is called Tom from Ticino, I presume that the steps are precluded by

1. Grow potatoes.
2. Pick potatoes.

and that is too much hassle. I rarely buy the store versions though, I just don't eat Röschti too often and make it from scratch when I do.

I write both versions, as in Swiss German there is no single dialect so the sch isn't necessarily used in every canton

You're the only one.

It's easy, when first arriving here, to make the mistake when trying to buy cumin here by buying Kümmel (caraway) thinking it's cumin rather than Kreuzkümmel (cumin).

I used to love the Dutch cheese with caraway seeds in it when I was a kid.

Sage is a nice replacement for the caraway... even stands up to bacon.



(And while we are overloading the carbs on this thread, what I wouldn't give for a fresh, dense loaf of caraway rye...)
