Potato Rosti With Cheese
Potato Rosti With Cheese

A Quick and Easy Breakfast

Hailing from Switzerland, potato rosti has become a popular breakfast all over the world. Traditionally, the recipe does not contain cheese, but I think cheese is an excellent addition. Making cheese potato rosti took me about 35 minutes.

Potatoes are naturally gluten-free and packed with potassium, fiber, antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium. It is also low-calorie and contains no fat, sodium, or cholesterol.
