Fried Potatoes & Bacon

Boil potatoes in a pot of salted water until tender, leaving skins on. Allow to cool; peel and grate potatoes. Cube bacon slices; fry in a skillet over high heat. Add chopped onion; stir and cook for two or three minutes. Add grated potatoes; stir. Salt to taste. Turn mixture with a spatula when brown and crisp; cook the other side. Place Swiss cheese slices on half the potatoes; fold over to cover. Garnish with parsley if desired. Serve hot.


Variation: Cook grated potatoes with sliced mushrooms and chopped fresh chives; known as Morel Rosti.
