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.
