"But, I'd make it my way. Why mess with perfection. I have been making a potato cake for years but, without the lemon-pepper, Greek seasoning or garlic salt. I make it with pepperoni (cut-up) and fontina or provolone cheese. Everything else is exactly the same. It's Italian. And I don't use seasoned bread crumbs, but have wanted to try it. I just never think of it in time."

"My family loves this! I even substituted salami with a layer of sauteed ground meat with green onions and used pepper jack cheese for the center layer. It was a hit!"

"I made this on St Patricks Day, I used provalone cheese insteas of fontaina and no meat. It was wonderful and went great with several meat entrays. The last piece needed a little gravy and was delishious! Next time I'll use yugon gold instead of russets, pepper jack cheese and ground lamb with bacon for a complete meal "cake". It's a big"cake"!"
