Röschti is a Swiss dish consisting mainly of potatoes. It was originally a common breakfast eaten by farmers in the canton of Bern, but today is eaten all over Switzerland. Many Swiss people consider röschti a national dish. Made with roughly grated potato, either cooked or raw it is fried in butter or fat. The grated potatoes are then shaped into patties, and a number of additional ingredients are sometimes added, such as bacon, onion, cheese, apple or fresh herbs.
