Hi there.
Let me tell you about a Swiss dish, which is called Rosti. You need to grate some potatoes. Put some vegetable oil in a frying pan and warm it. Then put potatoes in a pan and fry it. Then you need to grate some cheese. At the end of frying, you need to put cheese on the top of the potatoes. When cheese is melting, the dish is ready. You can put another ingredients if you want, for example a ham, etc.
