A Sunday SIde

I call this a side dish here merely for the sake of those who feel a meal is not complete unless there is some kind of meat on the plate. I ate this with a small salad and called it


Artichoke Heart Rosti
 (pretend there are those two dots over the o in rosti because I am too lazy right now to look up yet again how to do that on the computer)

3 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
1/2 cup small artichoke hearts, chopped
      (I used plain canned, not marinated)
2 T chopped fresh parsley
2 T vegetable oil, divided

Thaw potatoes by rinsing them under warm running water.  Drain on paper towels.
Mix potato, artichoke, and parsley in a bowl.
Heat 1 T of oil in a frying pan (one with sloped sides) over medium-high heat. Add potato mixture and press into a flattened circle with a spatula.
Cook for 6 to 7 minutes.
Invert the rosti onto a plate.  Heat remaining oil and slide the rosti back into the pan.  Cook for 6 to 7 minutes more.  Go for nicely browned and crispy on both sides.
Let it rest for 2 minutes before serving.

I had some leftover mashed potato and I added just a bit to this to bind it together a bit more.

P.S. to Ginnie: The Rachael Ray cheesey potatoes were amazingly delicious.
Thank-you!  And get better!!  That's an order and we all say so.


  1. You got me eating avocados. Can artichokes be next?

  2. Mmmm. A crispy hash brown pancake. Sounds yummy.

  3. This sounds good except I would have to add some spice to it for my tastes...curry or smoked paprika or oregano, etc.

  4. Yum! Sounds easy and delicious. A must try. BTW: Just hit 'insert' on your word processing program (e.g. MS Word,) and hit 'symbols.' A list of foreign lettering will be shown, and the umlaut is among them.

    1. Thanks, Muffie. I will try to remember that.

  5. Oh, that sounds so delicious. Yum!

  6. Sounds wonderful and I was actually trying to figure out something different to do with the can of artichoke hearts out in the cupboard! Thank you!

  7. Oooh, I haven't had artichokes in a long time. I could do this. Thanks.

  8. Me neither and I love artichokes. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  9. That sounds like something I will attempt to fix. It seems fairly simple and good. Thanks.

  10. This sounds so delicious and quite satisfying. I love artichokes.

  11. Well done. I'm getting worse at being creative in the kitchen. Hubby's stomach issues preclude it... Good for you!
    P.S. Our snow tires are off. I cross my fingers!
