Mashed Potatoes Twice-Baked

From Quick Cooking magazine of 2005...just like the filling in a twice-baked baking potatoes but using either freshly made or leftover mashed potatoes. I like making extra mashed potatoes and then making this dish. I also like to add a bit of extra chopped green onion and extra crumbled bacon to the topping before baking. Yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 118.29 ml green onion, chopped fine
  • 118.29 ml red pepper, chopped fine (optional)
  • 14.79 ml canola oil
  • 946.36 ml mashed potatoes (prepared with milk & butter, leftovers are fine)
  • 236.59 ml cheddar cheese, shredded (divided 1/2 c and 1/2 c)
  • 59.14 ml bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled (turkey bacon works fine)
  • 4.92 ml salt
  • 2.46 ml pepper


  1. In a small skillet, saute onion and red pepper in oil until tender.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the onion mixture, mashed potatoes, 1/2 c cheese, bacon, salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon into a lightly sprayed/greased 2 quart baking dish.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining cheese (and if desired, add some extra chopped green onion and extra crumbled cooked bacon to the top).
  5. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Excellent potatoes!! Made half the recipe since it is just DH and I that eat potatoes and it was enough for both of us for dinner and lunch for DH...should have made the full batch so I could have leftovers too! I didn't have leftover mashed potatoes so made some from scratch and cooked the onions with the bacon. Made for ZWT8.
