Remove the egg ring and flatten them out slightly. Cook them for 2-3 minutes at a moderate heat on each side so that they are golden brown and crisp on the outside and cooked through. Remove the rosti's from the heat and repeat the process with the remaining rosti's Set them aside and keep warm until ready to serve.
