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!
