  1. Adriana – I love the idea of this recipe, but my Siggi is definitely not a fan of spinach. What other veggies (or combo of veggies) would you suggest to sub for the spinach?

  2. What a beautiful dish, perfect for brunch, I love the potatoe crust so unique and in my opinion much tastier then usual “dough” based crust!

  3. Well, this was a huge success, and I was very happy with myself that I managed to make the recipe as it appears, very proud of myself actually!! The potato ring took a bit of doing, but the results were so worth it, next time I have company this will definitely be on the menu!!!!!! It made a great dinner and I had plenty left over for lunches, thank you for sharing this stunning recipe, and I would recommend to anyone, follow the directions and you will produce a restaurant quality dish!!!! Plus, it tastes great 😀

    • Thanks a lot Karen, this makes me so happy! I’m glad that you managed to prepare the potatoes ring. I was not so sure that the instruction were clear enough to prepare it! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe and for your great comments!
