Note: + 5 mins resting time



  • 4 large brushed potatoes, peeled
  • 1 brown onion
  • 40g butter, melted
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 4 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed, halved lengthways
  • 60g pkt Coles Australian Baby Spinach
  • 50g marinated goat’s cheese
  • 1 tbs pistachio dukkah
  • 1 lemon, zested



Use a box grater to coarsely grate the potatoes and onion. Place in a colander to drain. Use your hands to squeeze the mixture to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard the liquid. Place potato mixture in a large bowl. Add butter. Season. Stir to combine.


Heat the oil in a 22cm (base measurement) non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spoon the potato mixture evenly over the base of the pan, pressing down firmly with a spatula. Cook for 5 mins or until light golden underneath. Place a plate over the frying pan and carefully invert the pan. Return the pan to the heat and carefully slide the potato mixture, cooked-side up, into the pan. Cook for a further 5-7 mins or until golden brown and cooked through.


Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Add the vinegar. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl. Stir the water to create a whirlpool. Pour the egg into the centre of the whirlpool. Cook, without stirring, for 3 mins for a runny yolk or until cooked to your liking. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a bowl. Cover to keep warm. Repeat, in batches, with the remaining eggs.


Place the asparagus in a large heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover. Set aside for 2 mins or until bright green. Drain well.


Transfer the rosti in the frying pan to a serving platter. Top with the spinach, asparagus and poached eggs. Sprinkle with goat’s cheese, pistachio dukkah and lemon zest.
