Potato Apple Bread | Apple stuffed Flatbread from Ireland

We are finally on the last day of the series and I simply can't believe that I have reached this day. When I started I was still very skeptical if I will ever complete the series or not.

Crisp Rösti Potatoes

Next in the Breakfast series is Rösti or Röschti, a Swiss dish made with grated potatoes and eaten as a breakfast dish.
