Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs! If you have any leftover mashed potatoes, this is a great way to use them up!

These Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs are literally one of the best things I’ve ever made…and I make a lot of things!  It was like every little bit of comfort food you could ever want all rolled up in one little bundle!   Truly, who doesn’t LOVE loaded mashed potatoes?  Since the biscuits are rolled out, they create a light crispy crust to hold the cheese, mashed potatoes, bacon..  mmmmmm!!  I cannot wait to make these again!

If you happen to have leftover mashed potatoes, you can definitely use those and just add in the bacon, cheese and chives…. or you could even use packaged potatoes if you’re really in a rush! If you like twice baked potatoes, you’ll love this recipe!

Be warned, once you make these once, you will have to make them again!

  1. Woah! That is a lot of comfort food in one biscuit-y package. This is definitely something I would make with leftover mashed potatoes. In fact I would make sure there were leftovers so I could wrap them in biscuit dough.

  2. Hi Holly
    Would the biscuit be similar to a scone dough or more like a bun/bread mixture? I’m from Australia & we definitely don’t have anything like this in our supermarkets.
    Thanks

  3. ALTHOUGH THIS RECIPE LOOKS VERY INTERESTING, BEING A NOVICE CHEF @ 71YO I HAVE A QUESTION. HOW DO I DETERMINE THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF INSTANT MASHED POTATOES? OR LEFTOVERS FOR THAT MATTER?? I SHOULD THINK THAT ONE WOULD NEED CUP OR WEIGHT MEASUREMENTS. ANY SUGGESTIONS???

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

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

  5. 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!!!!

  6. Quick question? Would these be good at room temperature or cold? I’m thinking of making them for a party, so I want to make sure if we should warm them up with a microwave.

    1. 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. :)

    1. 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!

  7. Congratulations!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
