Leftover Mashed Potato Cups

Loaded Mashed Potato Cups are a cheesy, potato-y solution for those leftover potatoes from your holiday feast. 


  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked crispy and finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chives, chopped
  • Sour cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease a 24 mini muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine mashed potatoes, eggs, 1 cup cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, pepper, and chives. Continue to fold in ingredients until eggs are incorporated and cheese and bacon are incorporated throughout.
  3. Fill each greased muffin cup with the potato mixture to the top and sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 18 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and allow potato puffs to cool down for a few minutes. Serve warm topped with sour cream and chives.
