Ingredients

Dill-Mustard Cream Cheese:
  • one-third pkg (250 g pkg) cream cheese softened
  • pinch grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons capers drained, rinsed and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill finely chopped
  • pinch pepper
Rösti:
  • 1 kg russet potato (about 2 large), peeled
  • 400 g sweet potatoes (about 1 large), peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3/4 teaspoons each onion powder and salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and freshly grated nutmeg
Topping:
  • 150 g smoked salmon sliced in 60 bite-size strips
  • 4 teaspoons fresh dill

Method

Rösti: In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook russet potatoes and sweet potato, covered, until slightly tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Let cool enough to handle.

Using coarse side of box grater, grate russet potatoes and sweet potato into large bowl; stir in butter, onion powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg until combined.

Press into bottom of parchment paper–lined 15- x 10-inch (40 x 25 cm) rimmed baking sheet. Bake on bottom rack of 450°F (230°C) oven until bottom and top are golden, about 55 minutes. Let cool slightly. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely; cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Reheat in 375°F/190°C oven until warmed through, about 10 minutes.) Cut into 60 squares.

Dill-Mustard Cream Cheese:
In bowl, beat together cream cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, mustard, capers, dill and pepper until smooth. Spread onto rösti squares.

Topping: Garnish each rösti square with 1 strip of salmon and 1 small sprig of dill.
