    1. Hi Sian,

      Yes, these could be frozen – make sure you put them into the freezer flat so make sure they don’t get squashed before fully frozen.

      To reheat, cook in the oven from frozen until cooked through and crispy 🙂

      Thanks for commenting,

      Emma

  1. Made these today. Absolutely gorgeous. I’d run out of chilli flakes so sprinkled in some Harissa Spice instead. Had them with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. I think my sweet potatoes and carrots were on the large size though as I seemed to have made 14. Whoops. Half today and half tomorrow and totally guilt free.

  2. Lovely idea. I am making them tomorrow for my coeliac friend along with a plain potato and onion one and the carrot and potato one too. Ive got meringue and creme fraiche and lumpfish roe for the rosti.

  3. Absolutely loved these. What a fabulous addition to our Saturday breakfast. I did exactly as you said and left them alone for 6 minutes before turning and they were perfect. I’m not sure they would have been so good if Hubble hadn’t been on hand to remove the moisture with the tea-towel though. He got far more water out of the veg than I managed which I’m sure made a difference to the way they cooked. Thank you for a fab recipe!

  4. I just made this for my brunch today. Delicious and will definitely be having this again 😊
