What can I say? I had the oven out and there were some ingredients in the fridge and larder plus every body was hungry, so this is what I came up with. I used to make potato rosti, but they have always been fried and in fact, I've never tried this one. But it turned out just nice, a little tricky getting them out of the cupcake pan though, so next time I'll grease it with a little more margarine! My kids loved it with some chili sauce (of course, to them, everything would taste better with some chili sauce!) I only made a small batch of twelve rostis (enough for the cupcake pan) and it was gone before I know it! And it didn't take long to put together either!
5 medium potatoes (scrubbed, dried and coarsely grated)
4 crab stick filaments (cut into matchsticks)
1 cup grated cheese (I used Cheddar; that was the only cheese in the fridge!)
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 tsp cornflour
Salt and pepper to taste
Just mix everything together and distribute evenly into the cupcake pan. Bake in a 180 C oven for about 30 minutes. Serve warm (with chili sauce if you like!)
