Ham, cheese and egg rosti

This dish brings back a lot of memories for Barry. When he worked in Switzerland this was a firm favourite when he returned from a long day on the slopes. Proper comfort food and stacked full of energy... a swiss potato rosti is unbelievably delicious considering the simplicity of its ingredients!
