We cooked this up for our lunch yesterday. Oh my gosh, it was fabulous! We all loved the crispiness of the potatoes, the taste of the parma ham and onions and the delicious cheese melted on top. This is a winner!! I'm going to tuck this into my Best of 2015 file. Thank you!

I really enjoyed this! A beautiful contrast of flavors and textures- the potatoes are crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. The ham, cheese and onion topping just makes this a perfect dish. I enjoyed this for breakfast, but it would be great for a brunch, lunch, or even a casual light dinner with a green salad and white wine. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
