Don't attempt to freeze these as mashed potato tastes awful after it has been frozen.
Instead of roasting the potato skins, you can also deep fry them in a fryer at 180 degrees C.
Microwaving the potatoes for 40 minutes will give you cinders. Only a conventional oven, at this timing, would be appropriate. Micro for 2 minutes, turn them over, cook another two - done! Yes, I tweaked it - I made a prawn and cream cheese spicy filling and topped it with a crescent of avocado when cooked. - 14 Oct 2015
Must admit that I adapted it a bit, didn't have the same ingredients, but the technique is spot on! Will definitely make again, and know I can change flavours to suit whatever I'm serving with. Absolutely scrummy..... huge thanks for sharing - 28 Aug 2013
A little fiddly but worth it - went down a treat at a recent family do! - 07 Nov 2014
