Rösti is a traditional Swiss dish featuring one glorious and versatile favorite, the potato. What's not to love about a thick, golden potato pancake that goes well with a dozen condiments and garnishes?
If you're feeling adventurous you can add in sauteed veggies or pair with a slice of tofu quiche, but I suggest tipping your hat to the simple goodness of the pomme de terre by letting the spuds stand alone as the base of your breakfast. Serve alongside garden finds like wild arugula, grape tomatoes, basil, blackberries and raspberries.
When I was in Switzerland recently, I fell in love with this delicious sweet-and-spicy fig mustard (pictured) that is great for slathering on sandwiches, crackers or rösti. Friends reprimanded me for being too liberal with the golden spread, but what's to hate about a girl who can't get enough of a good thing?
Here's to uncomplicated deliciousness!
