Additional Information:
Florian loves the rosti potatoes. We just came back from the Swiss Alps and got inspired to make our own. We tried it this evening for dinner. Florian helped to grate the potatoes. It was very successful and we have created the rosti potatoes just the way it looked and tasted, while we were in Switzerland. Adding onion helped to give it the crispy brown effect. It was Florian's idea to add onion. It was actually very easy to make. We did not pre-boil the potatoes. Thus, this is a very simple no fuss recipe and it tasted good. We read about the recipe from the cook book we browsed through, while we were in Switzerland. We will certainly make it again :-)
