This Irish proverb is never true in our house when the first of the new potatoes are dug.
I’m not HALVING my potato with ANYONE! I think there is nothing more Irish, to have boiled new potatoes with golden butter, and just a little Irish Sea Salt.
And no issue with leftovers either, simply chop the cold spuds,
add sliced spring onion and a very generous dollop of homemade mayonnaise. I sometimes add a little extra olive oil too.
And there you have a great tasting accompaniment to anything really, for me its best with lightly grilled chicken and a fresh green salad.
