Twice Baked Potatoes in a Muffin Tin


Is there anything better than mashed potatoes? Only when you put them back in the oven for a second baking. I love twice baked potatoes, the are creamy and full of flavor. I have always wished for a crispier twice baked potato and when we started making lasagna in muffin tins, we used the same technique for these and they have perfect crispy edges and a cheesy top. 

The best part about these is that you can customize them to your family. If you like sour cream, bacon and green onions on your baked potatoes, put them in your twice baked potatoes, if there is something you don't like, just leave it out. 

You will need:

  • 2 pounds of leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 Stick of butter, melted
  • 1 C. Sour Cream
  • 12 pieces of bacon, fried and crumbled 
  • 2 T. diced green onions
  • Cheese
  • Cooking Spray

Combine all of the ingredients on the list. You can add or take away things depending on your potato preference. Add some cheese in the mixture and save some for sprinkling on top.

When everything is well combine, grease a muffin tin well and then fill each cup of the muffin tin with the potatoes. Top with a pinch of cheese on each potato. 

Bake the potatoes at 400 degree for 30-45 minutes until they are brown and crispy. 
What do you like in your potatoes?
