Traditional versions of this crisp Swiss potato cake virtually swim in butter. By baking the cake, we were able to dramatically reduce the fat yet retain crispness.
2 pounds  all-purpose potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold (about 8), peeled and quartered
1/4 cup  chopped scallions (4 scallions)
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2/3 cup  smoked ham, finely chopped (3 ounces)
1/2 cup  grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese (1 1/2 ounces)
Rosti Potatoes with Ham & Cheese Recipe at
Position oven rack at the lowest level. Preheat oven to 450°F.

Cover potatoes with cold water in a medium saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Drain and refresh with cold water. When cool enough to handle, grate the potatoes. Transfer to a bowl. Add scallions, salt and pepper; toss with a fork until mixed.

Coat a 10-inch pie plate or cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Brush 1 teaspoon oil evenly over the surface. Spread half of the potato mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with ham and cheese. Spread the remaining potato mixture over top, pressing evenly. Brush the remaining 1 teaspoon oil over the surface. Bake until the underside is golden and the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

Carefully loosen edges with a thin metal spatula or a knife. Shake the pie plate or pan to be sure the potatoes are sliding freely. Invert a serving platter over the pie plate or pan. Grasp the platter and the baking dish with oven mitts and carefully turn over. Remove the pie plate or pan. Cut into wedges with a serrated knife. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Great Healthy Side
This made a great, healthy side dish for brunch. I skipped the fussy step of cooking the potatoes and bought the pre-shredded stuff from Simply Potatoes. There was a little leftover, so I reheated it for dinner with a little sour cream on top.
