This recipe has been placed here for play in Culinary Quest - Switzerland found at Almond Corner. A specialty from canton Graubünden in Switzerland, the so called Plain in Pigna. It is actually an oven baked rösti that contains a couple of different Swiss sausage specialties like Salsiz, Landjäger (smoked, raw beef and bacon sausage) or even Mostbröckli, which is a piece of smoked and dried raw beef. My family has traditionally always added eggs and cheese.
