skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and mushrooms and

about 8 minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook, stirring frequently, until
fragrant, about 30 seconds. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a
small bowl and wipe out skillet.

Heat 2
tablespoons (30ml) oil in skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add half

thing so the rösti is now cooked side up. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons (30ml)
oil in skillet and slide rösti back in. Continue cooking, swirling and shaking
pan occasionally, until deep golden brown and crisp on the second side, about 7
minutes longer. Slide rösti onto a cutting board. Serve immediately with a side
