Cheesy Mashed Potato Puffs – Thanksgiving Leftover Treats

You can never make enough mashed potatoes! And there are many ways to recreate deliciousness with leftover mashed potatoes but we love this recipe for Cheesy Mashed Potato Puffs!

A great side dish for breakfast or brunch, a quick and easy dip-able lunch for the kids and this is another great way to use up holiday meal leftovers and a simple recipe to feed family over a busy holiday weekend.


Cooking spray or butter
2 cups cooked mashed potatoes
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup grated cheese, such as Parmesan or Gruyère, divided
1/4 cup chives
1/4 cup diced cooked bacon or ham (optional)
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper or try our favorite Seasoned Pepper instead
Sour cream, for serving (optional)

Arrange a rack in the middle of oven and heat to 400°F.
Lightly coat the cups of a mini-muffin tin with cooking spray or butter.
Place the mashed potatoes, eggs, 3/4 cup of the cheese, chives, and bacon or ham in a large bowl and stir to combine. Season, if necessary, with salt and pepper. The seasoning will depend on how seasoned your mashed potatoes were to begin with.
Fill each muffin cup with the mashed potatoes. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese.
Bake until the potato cups are set, browned on top, and heated through, about 20 minutes. Let cool for about 5 minutes in the pan, then use a spoon or knife to gently release them from the pan. Serve immediately with dollops of sour cream, if desired.
