Sweet Potato Rosti With Smoked Salmon

Sweet Potato Rosti With Smoked Salmon

Rosti is the Swiss take on hash browns – a solid peasant’s breakfast of grated and fried potatoes with a huge number of local variations. The traditional rosti is big enough to fill a whole skillet and cut into pieces for serving, but these miniature versions make delicious appetizers or finger foods for a special brunch.

White potatoes are perfectly fine to eat, but this recipe uses sweet potatoes topped with smoked salmon and a rich-flavored mayonnaise for a decadent treat that combines crispy and creamy textures into one perfect bite.

If you’re going for a full brunch experience, you’ll probably want some supplementary protein to go with these – what about eggs Benedict or deviled eggs with guacamole to keep up the finger-food theme? Add a fruit salad or some berries on skewers to nibble, and you’ll have a beautiful spread for any occasion.
