"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!"

"These made a great addition to our steak dinner from GB tonight. Made for ZWT8"
"these are wicked good try these zaar world tour 8"
"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."
"These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use the optional red peppers. I mixed all the cheese in the potatoes. We enjoyed them."
"What a delicious and easy way to use leftover mashed potatoes! We really enjoyed the flavors. I included the optional red pepper and skipped adding more salt and pepper, since I was using leftover potatoes that were already seasoned. Thanks for sharing! ZWT7"
"Wonderful way to use up left over mashed potatoes!!! I only made about half of the recipe. I did add the optional additional cheese and bacon on the top and served it with a kona coffee rubbed steak and salad, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!! Made for ZWT 6."
"So tasty! We really enjoyed these mashed potatoes. I was making Recipe #282887 as well, so I put this dish together and it could just sit in the oven at a low temperature while I prepared the rest of the meal. Made for ZWT7. Thanks Hokies! :)"
"I left out the red pepper, but made it the same otherwise and yum! Awesome loaded mashed potatoes, cheesey bacony how could you go wrong? A definite keeper, thanks for sharing! Made for Witchin Kitchen ZWT7."
"I used yellow onion. The onion and red pepper gave a great flavor to the potatoes. The potatoes were creamy to perfection. And the taste with the cheese and bacon mmmmmm Thanks Melissa :) Made for Market tag game"
"I halved this recipe but did use full quantity of bacon and cheese as per original though did no add salt (very rarely do so). The 3 of us (the DM, DS and myself thoroughly enjoyed this as a side dish with recipe #395068 and main recipe #370057). Thank you HokiesLady, made for Went To Market."
"Very good. Served these for Easter with ham which made everyone happy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"The clicking and whurring of my camera made me hungry...nooooooo, it had nothing to do with the smell of onions, bacon and potatoes. ;-) Made for Potluck Tag."
"After feasting on these, I seriously don't know if my family will eat plain mashed potatoes ever again! I made up a batch of mashed potatoes with milk, butter, salt and pepper just to make this recipe. Since they were already hot, I didn't need the full time in the oven. I left them in for 15 minutes at the most. I also screwed up and dumped the whole cup of cheese in, so I used extra for the top. Followed exact except for leaving the red pepper out. Thanks so much for sharing (or maybe not! HA!)...I know this will be a staple around here now."
"Just what I was looking for----jb"
"My DH esp likes twice-baked potatoes & this is such a good way to do them ~ w/none of the muss & fuss of using shells, but all the goodness of the usual flavors. I like them for their taste, ease of prep & the fact they go so well w/almost any entree or meal type. I used a combo of leek + fresh-snipped chives for the green onion rarely found here & esp liked the use of red pepper for its flavor, crunch & color. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us & CONGRATS on your *Football Pool* win! :-)"
"This one's a winner!!! Super simple to prepare and was a tremendous hit. I was afraid the flavors would be a bit mild because the aroma of the pre-baked "casserole" wasn't strong, but this was quite the tasty treat. Next time I might add more bacon, but that is just a family preference and the amount called for in the recipe is plenty. By the way, I didn't use the pepper in mine either. I imagine it would add something nice to the recipe, but I was cooking for my niece and I knew if I tampered with the balance of mashed potatoes, cheese and bacon I'd never hear the end of it. Maybe I'll add that ingredient in another time."
"OMG This was just wonderful. Flavors blended so well together. I refused to spend almost $3 for a red pepper so I left it out, but other than that, and scaling it down for the 2 of us, made as directed. I really didn't think the potatoes would heat through in the 20-25 minutes stated time, but I was so wrong. Perfect. Thanks. Made for SSC Pet Parade"
"This is a favorite side dish for my family! Potatoes, bacon, cheese - what more could you want? I did leave out the onions and skipped the optional red pepper. This is a great dish that would go with just about anything - thanks for sharing!"
