‘Eggs’travaganza Week – Saturday: Rösti-Baby Style

Traditionally Rösti is a Swiss breakfast dish made with raw grated potatoes. Usually it is just the potato garnished with salt and pepper and pan fried in a large patty format which goes really well with a dollop of sour cream and chives helping on top. I’ve always loved it and this was a great way to introduce T to a new breakfast item. This Rösti recipe though is my take on the original and it gives him something other than just the potato.


  • 1 Medium size grated par boiled potato
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • Finely chopped celery
  • Grated cheese
  • Pinch of mustard powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and make a large flat patty. Pan fry in butter until golden brown. Serve warm.




‘Eggs’travaganza Week – Friday: Egg Paratha

This one is a household hit with us. It works out especially well when there are leftover Chapatis. We had a baby Chapati left over from last night and what better way to recycle than the family favourite Egg Paratha.


What you need:

  • 1 Chapatti
  • 1 Egg yolk whisked in with a tbsp of milk
  • Quarter cube cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Pinch of mustard powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How it’s done:

  • Whisk the cheese in with the egg
  • With the oil in the heated pan, gently place the chapatti
  • Pour the mix on top
  • Cook for a min and fold into half.

Egg Quesadilla: One could make Quesadillas with two Chapatis, in which case after pouring the mix on the chapati place the second chapati on top. Flip on both sides until golden brown. Cut up into triangles and serve.
