The Fix for Leftover Mashed Potatoes

This is a tasty way to fix leftover mashed potatoes so they don't feel like leftovers. Sometimes I make too many potatoes on purpose, so I can make this up and refrigerate it for later in the week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the potatoes, green onions, onion powder, black pepper and sour cream.
  3. Spread mixture evenly in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with bacon and grated cheese.
  4. Bake approximately 20 minutes until mixture is hot and cheese melted.

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!
