Sweet Potato Rosti

Spoil yourself this weekend with a Rosti for breakfast. Cheesy, crisp and delicious with some bacon and eggs.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 eggs
  • butter
  • smokey bacon
  • vinegar
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil


Heat up some oil in a pan and fry some shopped up garlic and onion until soft and tender.

Grate the sweet potatoes, season with a pinch of salt and place them in a kitchen towel. Wrap them up in the towel and squeeze to release all the water.

Lay some bacon out on tray with grease proof paper and transfer to the oven to bake until crisp.

In a large bowl mix together the sweet potato, cheese and now cooked onion and garlic and give it a good toss. Now transfer the rosti mixture to a pan, flatten like a pancake and fry until crisp, then carefully slip and do the same.

Lay the rosti on a plate with chopped up bacon and a poached egg and enjoy.
