Crisp on the outside, soft and tender inside, these traditional Swiss potato cakes are a national favourite and taste even better with the addition of bacon
 
Serves 4
 
450g/1lb potatoes, left whole and unpeeled
30ml/2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
4 slices rindless lean back bacon, cubed
15ml/1 tbsp potato flour
30ml/2 tbsp chopped fresh mixed herbs
salt and ground black pepper
fresh parsley sprigs, to garnish
 
1 Lightly grease a baking sheet. Par-boil the potatoes in a pan of lightly salted, boiling water for about 6 minutes. Drain the potatoes and set aside to cool slightly
 2 Once cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and coarsely grate them into a bowl. Set aside
 3 Heat 15ml/1 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and bacon and cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/Gas 7
 4 Remove the pan from the heat. Stir the bacon mixture, remaining oil, potato flour, herbs and seasoning into the grated potatoes and mix well
5 Divide the mixture into 8 small piles and spoon them on to the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between them
 6 Bake for 20–25 minutes until the rösti are crisp and golden brown.
 
Serve immediately, garnished with sprigs of fresh parsley
