How to make the perfect potato rösti on the BBQ!
The potato is, without a doubt, the most cooked root vegetable in the world. Fried, mashed or diced, several techniques are available to bring justice to this modestly priced vegetable, and it always results in a good accompaniment. Naturally, we love grilling up a delicious potato rosti dish.
The easiest way to cook a good potato on the BBQ is by using the House of BBQ Experts Veggie rack. Use oil and House of BBQ Experts California spices as a rub on your potatoes and plant them in the Veggie Rack, then let it cook with excellent heat distribution. This results in a soft and mellow potato on the inside with crispy skin on the outside.
The delicious Potato Rosti
To prepare the potato, I love the rösti style. A potato rösti is a Swiss dish consisting mainly of potatoes, in the style of a fritter. It was originally a breakfast dish, commonly eaten by farmers in the canton of Bern, but is now eaten all over Switzerland and around the world. My recipe is a two-colour rösti made of yellow and sweet potatoes. To prepare it, you’ll need four big yellow potatoes and four big sweet potatoes. Start by grating them and then rinse the potatoes to remove as much starch as we can. Also, it is very good to put some lemon juice on your potatoes to prevent them from blackening.
Then, in a large stainless steel bowl, stir in the potatoes, three teaspoons of avocado oil, a bit of California spice, two eggs, cheddar cheese and fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, basil), or more if you’re feeling dangerous.
Mix it thoroughly in order to make several good individual portions and then place them on your Napoleon cast iron cooking plate on the grill. It is also possible to put them directly on the BBQ grills by brushing them with oil beforehand.
A second way to get it done
Another way is to put all the contents in a buttered Camp Chef cast iron pan in the center of the BBQ with direct cooking until the oil is hot enough to fry. Cook for five minutes and then reduce the temperature to about 400 degrees. Continue cooking for 12 minutes or more depending on the thickness of your content. Add a little oil on top of the big rösti, then pinch it with a spatula and repeat this procedure. A simple and useful trick is to pin the contents on a plate before putting it back to cook.
Approximate cooking time: 35 minutes.
And there you have it! A lovely potato rosti to call your own!
