  1. Put the potato in a bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on high for 4 mins until partially softened, then leave to cool slightly. Meanwhile, grate the apple and sprouts, to their cores, into a clean tea towel, then grate the potato on top and use the tea towel to squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Tip into a bowl, crumble in the black pudding, add the garlic and stir through the cumin seeds. Season generously.

  2. Heat 1½ tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add half the potato mix, flatten with the back of a spatula to a thickness of around 1½ cm and fry for 3 mins. Put a plate on top of the pan, flip the rösti over, slide back into the pan and cook for 3 mins on the other side. Once golden, set aside, covered with some kitchen foil, and repeat with the remaining mixture to make a second rösti.

  3. Meanwhile, use a separate pan to fry the two eggs in a little oil. Serve each rösti topped with a fried egg, some cracked black pepper and a scattering of parsley.

This is one of those recipes that takes good items and ingredients and by mashing them together somewhat detracts from the good starting point. Its a bit like mixing every colour in your painting palette together and ending up with brown. I would rather eat mash, with sprouts and black pudding, crowned with say a poached egg and an apple for dessert instead. I will try its again just to be sure but unless youre a passionate rosti fan.... Its doesnt LOOK great and doesnt even taste great. Sorry! Plus it takes longer to prep than if cooked separately.

Tasty and I would try it again but not quite right first time. I did the potatoes int he microwave for 3 minutes but that was too long and they were too cooked and didn't hold their shape at all once grated. More a big ball of mashed potato. I didn't do enough sprouts but couldn't bear to grate any more and I couldn't find my food processor attachment. I'd definitely do the recommended amount next time. Couldn't taste the apple at all which was disappointing. Cumin a bit over powering too. Overall, nice idea and I'd try it again but would need to tweak it.
