First things first, we need to acknowledge where this dish comes from — history lesson time! Rostï is a breakfast dish from Switzerland that is similar to a huge hash brown or latke. First eaten by Swiss farmers to fuel them for a long day’s work, the original recipe includes just two ingredients: potatoes and a fat to fry them in (usually butter). And while those are arguably two of the best ingredients in the world, you know I had to put my own spin on it!
Beets sometimes get a bad rap, but trust me, this recipe will change your mind. They give the final product a beautiful color, so it’s a great centerpiece for an impressive breakfast. They also add a delicate sweetness but are still earthy like the potatoes, so they make a perfect pairing. Think of this recipe as hash browns’ fancy European aunt!
