Recipes LOADED MASHED POTATO ROSTI
LOADED MASHED POTATO ROSTI
What to do with leftover mashed potato? Make something fabulous of course! Rösti are normally made from raw potatoes, but we’re turning it on its head. We’re using mash and we’re stuffing it to the brim with all sorts of goodies. A quick dip in breadcrumbs and into the pan they go to fry until crisp and golden. And because more is more, we serve these loaded rösti with a green olive and caper salsa verde.

Mix all the salsa verde ingredients together and set aside to infuse. Fry the chorizo in a bit of olive oil until it starts to crisp. Add chorizo to the potato, spring onions, egg, feta cheese and Cape Herb & Spice Spicy Chip Seasoning. Mix to combine. Scoop a quarter cup of mash and form round patties. Roll the patties in the breadcrumbs to coat all over. Shallow fry over medium low heat in a non-stick pan until crisp and golden on the outside. Serve with the salsa verde.
