Vegetables and Side Dishes: Light Rosti with Mushrooms and Onions


8 C. frozen shredded hash browns
1 tsp. salt
6 slices turkey bacon
1 C. chopped onion
1 sprig fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
2 C. diced raw mushrooms
4 tsp. olive oil
4 oz. of light cheese, grated (Jarlsberg or your preference)


Add frozen hash browns to a microwave-safe covered container; add 1/2 C. water, cover, and microwave on HIGH until tender (about 15 minutes). Drain, sprinkle with salt, and set aside to cool. Coat a large, nonstick pan with some canola oil. Fry turkey bacon in the pan on medium heat until nicely crisp. Let cool on paper towel, and then crumble into pieces. Coat the same frying pan with canola or olive oil cooking spray. Add mushrooms and onions and cook until soft (about 5 minutes.) Turn off heat; stir in the bacon pieces and shredded potatoes. Heat 1/2 tsp. of olive oil over high heat in a small, nonstick frying pan. Scoop about 1 C. of the potato mixture into the center of the pan. Use a spatula to flatten it into a round, flat cake. When the bottom is nicely browned (about 2 minutes), flip it over and begin to brown the underside while you add about 2 T. of sliced cheese on top. Once the underside is lightly browned, either turn the Rosti onto a dinner plate or finish melting the cheese by putting the pan briefly under a broiler. Repeat this step with remaining potato mixture, olive oil, and cheese to make 6-8 "pancakes."
