"This rosti is one large potato pancake, and not individual ones. Making it as thin as possible makes for more nice crunchy bites. If you do have to make ahead, cool on a wire rack, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Reheat in an ovenproof skillet at 350° degrees for 10 minutes or until recrisped."
