Wednesday’s Specials: Potato Skins

Project Fairytale

Project Fairytale

I have a really special relationship with potatoes, one of my favourite memory from childhood is when my mother or grandma were heating mashed potatoes on the stove (no microwave back then) and some of it got burned and stuck to the pan. That was my favourite thing ever, I always demanded to have that part and just loved the taste. And baked potatoes are the thing that remind me most of that taste… But these baked potato skins should be a lot better, especially with bacon and spring onions. #nomnom
