Box of 4 frozen McCain potato Rostis reduced to only £1 in Asda as part of their rollback push. I paid £1.90 in Tesco last weekend, which is roughly what they are elsewhere. If you've not tried, them I recommend them! They're also one of Delia's cheat ingredients too.

These were the same price at Tesco when I bought them the other week (didn't think they were on special offer so didn't post) but it might've been a special offer whereas this is rollback so H+R added.

I love these things. They seemed to disappear for a while but now they're back - albeit in packs of four when they used to contain six. Same price when I found them at Sainsburys and Iceland. Still a hot deal, just available at more places.

These are always a garanteed buy for me when I am in ASDA and £1 is a bargain picked up 2 baxes the other day! :thumbsup:

Love 'em, nice find.

Mmmm.... Rostis!

Ikea do frozen Rostis in their shop, but they're pretty rank & loaded with grease. Mccains rostis rule!

Same price in Tesco.

has been this price at Iceland for ages

Voted cold as these are a quid in most places now

A potato is cheaper

Rosti are really easy to make yourself plus you have the added bonus of adding your own herbs, spices, etc.., they're also good thing to make if you want to get your kids involved in cooking as they love the mess:-D

Buying them ready made only seems a step away from buying those tubs of premade mash.

True...but they can't be as easy as taking out of the packet and sticking in the grill! By the time I get home after work after being away from the house for 12 hours the last thing I'd be doing would be making home made rosti!!

Thanks in advance!

There are literally hundreds of different recipes floating about the net and in cookbooks and they vary from the very quick and easy to ones with all kinds of herbs and spices added. The most common thing people disagree on is if you should parboil the potatos before grating - personally I do but it's down to personal choice - if you don't then you need to squeeze the water out of the grated potato (place into a tea towel, muslin square or even just use your hands) before frying.

Ingredients
Waxy potatos (red skinned potatos are a good bet if unsure)
Salt
Pepper
Butter

Preparation
Wash the potatos (leave the skin on) and cut into halves (or quarters if they're massive spuds).
Parboil in lightly salted water for 5-10 minutes (if you stick a fork into them they should be soft for approx 1cm before becoming firm - do not cook them all the way through) and then drain and leave to stand for a few minutes to cool. Once cool remove the skins (they should just peel off) and roughly grate the potatos into a bowl, season with salt and pepper.
Heat a frying pan with a bit of butter and once hot (but not too hot or the butter will burn) spread the grated potato out in the pan until no more than 1/2" thick. Fry until golden brown and then turn over and repeat with the other side.
Serve:thumbsup:

Or the quick prep instructions - parboil, peel, grate, season, fry:-D

A few hints and tips
If you like them a bit crisper then you can bake them in the oven for 5-10 minutes after frying.
You can get rosti rings that you place in the frying pan and put the potato into if you want to make smaller rosti but just use a metal biscuit cutter as they do the job just aswell.
Add cooked fish/meat, grated cheese/parboiled veg, herbs, spices etc... to the grated potato before frying if you want to liven them up a bit.
They're best served with a nice dip:)
