Fried potatoes or how we call it in Switzerland: "ROESCHTI".
In different cantons of Switzerland (like states in the USA) there are different kinds of ROESCHTI.
The Roeschti of Berne is the famoust one of the whole Roeschti-family:
1 kg of potatoes in their jackets (cooked 1 day before)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
50 g bacon (cubical)
2 tablespoons milk
Peal the potatoes, grate them on the (ROESCHTI)grater an mix them with salt. Heat the butter in a pan and add bacon and potatoes, turn them several times and rost gently. Roast the ROESCHTI for about 20 minutes. Pour milk over the ROESCHTI, put a lid on the pan and roast it further 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
Here you can see a small selection of our national dish:
Basle: with alot of onion rings
Tessin: with cubes of bacon and a special spice called "Rosmarien"
Zurich: with minced onions and cumin
Appenzell: with noodles, bacon and cheese from Appenzell
Uri: with mountain - cheese and coffee
