Frico (in original friulian language fricò) is a typical dish of Friuli and similar to another Alpine dish, Rösti, which consists of a wafer of shredded cheese and potatoes, then heated by baking or frying until crisp. The mixture becomes malleable during cooking. To prepare frico you need higher-fat hard cheeses like Montasio or Asiago. Originally when Friuli was a more impoverished country, frico was used to recycle cheese rinds. Frico is often used as garnish for soups or stews.
