Pancetta rosti
150g thin pancetta, cut into small pieces
800g (about 4) potatoes, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil

Fry the pancetta in a dry frying pan for 5 minutes or until crisp. Set aside.

Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and cool.

Grate the potatoes then transfer to a bowl with the pancetta. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix to combine.

Heat a little oil in a medium-large non-stick frying pan. Add the potato mix to the pan and press down firmly with the back of a fish slice. Fry for about 7-8 minutes or until golden then carefully flip, adding a little more oil to the pan as you do, and cook on the other side for 7-8 minutes.
