  • 1¼ lbs. potatoes (I used a yellow skinned potato)
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk (or milk)
  • ⅛ cup sour cream
  • Left over mashed potatoes (or packaged mashed potatoes)
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ tablespoons butter
  • ½ tablespoon sliced chives (or green onions)
  • 3 pieces of bacon cooked crisp and chopped or 2 tablespoons bacon bits
  • ⅓ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10¾" cubes of cheddar cheese
  • 1 roll of biscuit dough (10 biscuits)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mashed Potatoes
  1. Wash potatoes and poke with a fork a few times. Bake potatoes in oven 1 hour or microwave until soft. Allow to cool slighty. Slice each potato in ½ length wise. Scoop out the pulp and mash potatoes, buttermilk, sour cream, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in chives, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese. Let cool completely.
  1. Wrap 1½ tablespoons of mashed potatoes around each cube of cheese. Roll each biscuit with a rolling pin until big enough to enclose the potato ball. Be sure to seal each biscuit completely to hold the cheese in.
  2. Place seam side down on parchment lined baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.

    Can I use homemade biscuit dough, or does it have to be store bought ?
    Upon moving to Sweden, I have noticed and realized they do not have the same food convenience as America.

    Oh my goodness Holly these look so amazing! Mashed potatoes, bacon, cheese and biscuit? Where can you go wrong with this combination! The buns look like they are oozing with yummy goodness. Pinning and will definitely try this! Thanks for sharing.

      I use a whole biscuit… they are a fair size (about 3/4 cup in size). I haven’t tried small ones but that would be great as an appie or party food!

    Holly is there a way to cut this potatoes receipe down as I am a widow and don’t have many potatoes left over

    • says

      You could definitely half all of the ingredients. This would leave you with some leftover biscuits which you could just bake up and enjoy for breakfast. :)

  6. says

    I make these with scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon. Mashed potatoes? No thank you – unless you made it into a sweet potatoe pie donut. See what happens when I see things I don’t like? Right off the top of my head I start coming up with all these other recipes!!!!

      I haven’t tried making them ahead of time. The filling can definitely be made ahead of time. If you did want to make them ahead I would think a couple of hours ahead would be fine as long as they are covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated. If it is going to be longer than that, I would suggest baking them completely and then reheating them in the oven before serving.

    • says

      I have not stored or reheated leftovers of these. I would refrigerate leftovers in a sealed container for up to 2 days.

      To reheat, if you would like a crispy shell, I would recommend baking at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (you might want to keep an eye on them since I haven’t tried it) or reheating them in the microwave for about 1 minute each.

    wanting to make these tonight, but what would go with them? I cant see just making a meal out of these :) any suggestions?
