Potato Skin Burgers
If you prefer something other than flour burger buns, just give these Potato Skin Burgers a go. They’re one of the cutest ways to eat potatoes and really worth trying. They taste so good. Potatoes are tender, filled with sour cream and topped with a same-sized beef burger. They’re easy melt in your mouth right with the first bites. My family are now a big fan of them.
