The two best things, combined into one!

I just love potatoes! Mashed, roasted, fried...literally heaven for me. This recipe serves as a great side idea instead of your usual fries or roasted potatoes. You can also add pretty much anything you'd like inside. Bacon and cheese would definitely be a dreamy combo!
