Swiss cheese rosti potatoes is one of my favorite Swiss recipes. Whenever we go to Amish country, we always stop at the Chalet in the Valley for a meal – and the first thing I order is Swiss cheese rosti to go with my schnitzel. But, trust me… you can make it at home easy and quickly… without a trip to Switzerland! Of course, my Swiss ancestors are probably spinning in their graves… but, oh well.
