"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."
Serving Size: 1 (286 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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 have been making this and recommending it to others for a while now. Made it last week and DD(9) RAVED about the taste. she absolutely loved it -- it's her new fave!"
"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"
"Wonderful idea. I didn't use any green onions but I did use the onion powder. I skipped the black pepper since my leftovers had plenty in them already, and used fat free sour cream & reduced fat mexican cheese. It was so easy, and really jazzed up those boring leftovers. Thank u for sharing!"
"I had leftover mashed potatoes to use up and this recipe fit the bill. I was so glad I made these, everyone loved them. Thanks, Pixie!"
"Just like double baked potatoes without having to scoop and refill good idea, I'll keep this one handy"
"Very Yummy!! Great idea for them left over mashed potatoes. I didn't have sour cream on hand so left it out and they still tasted great! My picky eaters gobbled the madeover potatoes right up enjoying every last spud!! Thanks so much Pixie!! Will be made again, even if no leftover spuds!!"
"Simple and tastes great too."
"This recipe is great to use with leftover mashed potatoes. It is sooooo tasty. My family really did like it. Thanks for posting."
"So simple, and soooo delicious! My family liked it much better than potato cakes, and it took a whole lot less effort. Thanks for sharing a super recipe, Pixie! "
"These were delicious! I had leftover garlic mashed from Easter dinner, so made this up with the leftovers. I decided at the last minute, so had no green onions; I subbed some chives for them. I used Penzey's toasted onion powder to give it a little extra flavour, too. Also, I didn't have any bacon -- but this was yummy even without it! Couldn't be easier or simpler to put together and, as a bonus, it doesn't take long in the oven either. Thanks for posting; I'll be making this a lot!"
"This is a wonderful idea. I would make this and add layers of lasagne noodles and make lazy pyroghies out of this. Sounds wonderful...thanks for posting."
"Very good! Had this tonight with golden glazed carrots #94064 and crockpot roast chicken #64588.Thanks for the great recipe."
