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!

Items you’ll need for this recipe:

* Potato Masher * Biscuits * Parchment Paper * Baking Pan *

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 lbs . potatoes (I used a yellow skinned potato)
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk (or milk)
  • 1/8 cup sour cream

OR

  • Left over mashed potatoes (or packaged mashed potatoes)

Other

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon sliced chives (or green onions)
  • 3 pieces of bacon cooked crisp and chopped or 2 tablespoons bacon bits
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 3/4 ” cubes of cheddar cheese
  • 1 roll of biscuit dough (10 biscuits)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash potatoes and poke with a fork a few times. Bake potatoes in oven 1 hour or microwave until soft. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Slice each potato in 1/2 length wise. Scoop out the pulp and mash potatoes, buttermilk, sour cream, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper until smooth.
  4. Stir in chives, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese. Let cool completely.
  5. Wrap 1 1/2 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.
  6. Place seam side down on parchment lined baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.

  1. omgoodness…i’m in biscuit taters bacon cheese heaven right now. Heading to the store to make this tonight.

  2. Is 10 3/4″ cheese cube a misprint… that would be huge!

  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?

  5. How do you store and reheat leftovers?

    • 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.

  6. Is it possible to make ahead of time and bake right before serving?

    • 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.

  7. 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!!!!

  8. How would you of this with frozen roll dough?

  9. Do you use “Grands” size biscuits, or regular? Thanks! These look amazing!!

  10. 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.

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

    • 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. :)

  12. Mine turned out looking just like the picture, and taste just as good as the look! Thanks for an awesome fun recipe!!!

  13. Do you use whole biscuit or are these small

    • 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!

  14. Instead of bacon I used left over ham that I chopped up, delicious!

  15. Congratulations!

  25. the recipe asks for biscuit dough, whats the english equivilent as we dont have biscuit dough over here?

  26. How do you seal the biscuit dough so it won’t leak?

  27. 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.
