Bombs. Just about anything with bomb in its name is bound to be a hit with the sons. Far be it for me to try and keep them healthy, and alive, with full use of their life AND limbs.
I blame all the action movies their Dad and I have exposed them to, and the fact that the good guys always win and manage to get through everything unscathed.
Die Hard? They say Die Harder. Yippee Ki Yay Mother Heiffer. Ok, you can’t blame a mom for keeping some things PG 😉
We’ve all got a favorite 007. ‘Bond. James Bond’ Great at killing off evil masterminds and at the art of escape. Greater at destroying every gadget Q ever gives him.
Lethal Weapon, anyone? Unlike Murtagh, you can’t ever be too old for a classic action movie.
Although, I think it’s safe to say that based on my reaction when toast pops out of the toaster, I will never look that cool walking away from an explosion.
And all this is one of our favorite things about the sons being home from school, whether it’s the weekend or summer vacation.
We all get to pile up on the couch in an awkward pile of elbows, stinky feet, and chaotic disarray and ‘bond’ over the special affects and often over the top plots without having to worry about anywhere to be or bedtimes. Thank you Netflix!
And we all know that no Netflix marathon is complete without snacks. At least not around these parts. So what better pairing than these little dough balls that are bursting with flavor?

Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs
- leftover mashed potatoes about 1- 1 1/2 cups worth
- 1/8 cup sour cream
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp chives
- 3 pieces of bacon cooked crisp OR 2 tbsp bacon bits
- 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 10 3/4 ″ cubes of cheddar cheese OR Velveeta
- 1 roll of refrigerated biscuits full size 10 pk
- salt and pepper to taste
- Warm up the mashed potatoes.
- In a medium to large bowl, add the potatoes, sour cream, garlic, chives, bacon, and cheese. Stir together until everything is evenly incorporated. Salt and pepper the mashed potatoes, to taste. Allow the potatoes to cool completely.
- Wrap 1 1/2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes around each cube of cheese. Use a rolling pin to roll out each biscuit until it’s big enough to enclose the potato ball. Wrap the flattened biscuits around the potato balls, making sure to seal them completely so that the cheese stays in during baking.
- Place the biscuits seam side down on a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through and the cheese is melted.
