YUMMY! We NEVER have left over mashed potatoes, so I made instant mashed potatoes (we really like them just as much as real ones :) just so I could try this recipe. Everyone loved it, even the kids. Next time I make mashed potatoes and serve them "as is", I will make extra so we can have this dish a couple nights later. It is REALLY tasty and not "same old, same old"! Thanks!

Yum! Thanks for a great recipe to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. cut the recipe down to serve 2 and it worked great. I can foresee a lot of wonderful additions to this as well. will definitely be using this recipe again!

Yum! These are so good. I served these for brunch, and they were gone fast! Everyone loved them, thanks for a great side dish for any time of day!

I made this tonight to use up mashed potatoes from Monday night. While I didn't use bacon or cheese, this was still delicious. I usually don't like leftover mashed potatoes because the consistency changes but I re-whipped the potatoes with low fat sour cream, milk and green onions amd he result was yummy. I will definitely use this recipe again to use up mashed potatoes.

I used some leftover ham instead of bacon. So yummy! What a great way to use up these leftovers... I've always thrown them out since they don't reheat well. Now we'll be sure to make leftovers ;). Even my 3 year old liked them and he never eats mashed potatoes.

This is terrific! I have a son that doesn't like regular mashed potatoes, but loves these! I've used dried chives when fresh green onions aren't available. YUM!

Had these tonight with some leftover swiss steak. I didn't have any green onoins but used chives as one reviewer suggested. I think the green onions would have been great sprinkled on top after removing from the oven. This was very good & we will have it again.

What a great way to use the leftover boiled potatoes from St Patrick's Day! I used a leek and fat free plain yogurt instead of the sour cream. This was creamy and had wonderful consistency along with great taste.

great time and money saver for left over potatoes. I had left over boiled potatoes so we adapted the recipe- peel and mash, a little sour cream on top, dots of butter , salt n pepper, and cheese-yummy
