    Meanwhile, cook your bacon. Chop your bacon into small pieces. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter or ghee, then add the bacon.  Cook, stirring frequently, until the bacon is crispy and the fat has rendered out of the bacon. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon and drain on absorbent paper. Retain the bacon fat.

    Once the potatoes are cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Slice each potato in half and scoop out the soft flesh into a bowl. Mix through the butter, bacon and bacon fat, scallions and remaining salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.
