Scallion Potato Pancakes with Vinegar Cream


This is a very simple traditional Swiss dish called rösti, with the addition of scallions. The potatoes should be boiled the night before, which makes this dish very quick to pull together -- and absolutely great for breakfast. The cream topping is inspired by The French Laundry Cookbook, p.64. I made it my own by adding tarragon, scallions, and garlic.

What you will need

1 russet potato, large

1/2 cup scallions, green and white parts only, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon butter, melted

1 pinch salt

1 pinch white pepper

3 tablespoons duck fat

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

1 scallion, dark green part only, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon garlic, finely grated

1 teaspoon tarragon leaves, finely chopped

1 pinch salt

1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
