    I have a serious problem I am about to own up to. When I make mashed potatoes, I have a terrible time estimating how much I will need. Loaded Mashed Potato Cups are my solution for too many potatoes.

    Somehow I always end up with way too much.  This happens every single time I make mashed potatoes or cocktail sauce.  Not sure why…. And pasta. Always too much pasta.

    I am sure I’m not the only one who ends up with leftovers. Mashed Potato Cups the perfect way to make a small amount of leftovers into a full side dish.

    You can use any variety of mashed potatoes you’d like. From scratch, from a box, loaded with cream cheese, made from sweet potatoes, it doesn’t matter.

    Even if you don’t have a full two cups, you can also cut this recipe in half with just one cup. Or make some instant mashed potatoes to round out the batch.

    Truth be told, I like my Loaded Mashed Potato Cups so much, I’ve been known to whip up a batch of mashed potatoes just to make this recipe. I will say it works best with cold, congealed mashed potatoes so this required you to think ahead a little.

    I then mix them with eggs and cheese, which allows them to set up and form nice little cups that could be eaten as finger food, if you’d like. Top them with whatever you’d top your baked potato with.

    I load mine with more cheese, bacon, scallions or chives and sour cream! What do you top your potatoes with?
