After reading the recipe I thought it was an interesting concept but sounded bland. I added Applewood smoked bacon, onion, garlic, a few chili pepper flakes and a squeeze of lemon to brighten the favors. It was excellent and a beautiful presentation. My husband wants it again and he's a picky eater.
Swiss Chard-Ricotta Galettes with Fried Eggs
You can make these ahead, without the fried egg on top. Reheat in the oven; then, fry eggs and place on top of each galette just before serving.
