First of all I would like to apologize for my absence.
I have some family problems and a flurry of psoriasis by stress. So, all this makes me very discouraged and sometimes sad out of the blue. I hope you know understand .
On Tuesday I woke up wondering why I had bought so many potatoes, I think I found them cheap and with a ideal size for roasting, but, as they were closed in the package I had no choice, bring home three pounds!!!
Happy women┬┤s day
I made this pie on Friday, taking advantage of good and down temperatures to use the oven
You can also add ham (I've done and looks great) or crispy bacon intead the cheese if you like.
I hope you enjoy the recipe and have a great weekend.
