If you love hash browns and potato pancakes, you’re going to love this rosti recipe. Rosti, a Swiss dish of grated potatoes formed into a small flat cake and fried, was originally eaten as a breakfast dish by farmers in Switzerland. But the popularity of this simple, yet delicious dish has grown, and it’s now enjoyed throughout the world for every meal. Our skillet-sized lactose-free ham and asparagus rosti recipe is made with Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar or Cabot 3 Year Cheddar, ham and fresh asparagus, and makes a perfectly portioned family meal that’s ideal for lunch, brunch or a light dinner. After making this scrumptious rosti recipe, share it with family and friends on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram.


To make four servings, place shredded potatoes in a colander, squeeze excess moisture out and blot with paper towels. Toss potatoes, asparagus, ham, shallot, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a medium bowl.


Heat 1 teaspoon of canola oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat until the oil is shimmering but not smoking. Add the potato mixture and spread out into an even layer. Cook, undisturbed, until the bottom of the potato is browned, about 7 to 10 minutes.


Remove skillet from heat and run a spatula around rosti to make sure it’s completely loose in the skillet. Invert a large flat platter or an un-rimmed baking sheet over the skillet and grasp together with oven mitts. Carefully flip rosti onto the platter or baking sheet.


Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel and add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the skillet and place over medium-high heat. Slide the rosti into the skillet and sprinkle with the Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar. Continue cooking and adjust heat down to medium-low, if needed, to prevent burning. Cook until the bottom is browned and the potato is cooked through, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.
