  6. Tip the potatoes into the pan and lightly pat down and smooth the edges with a wooden spoon.
  7. Cook, without stirring or moving the potatoes, for 10 minutes or until the bottom of the rosti is crispy and golden.
  8. Run a metal spatula under the rosti to make sure it is loose from the pan all over.

  10. Add the remaining butter to the pan and once melted, slide the rosti back into the pan, golden side up.
  11. Cook for a further 10 minutes or until the rosti is golden on the underside and the potatoes tender.
  12. While the rosti is cooking, heat the Rhodes Quality Chakalaka Mild & Spicy and the Rhodes Quality Butter Beans together in a small pan.
  13. Once the rosti is cooked, turn out onto a serving plate and cut into wedges.
  14. Spoon the chakalaka over the rosti and serve immediately with the bacon.
