This twice baked potato recipe is a great use of those leftover mashed potatoes. Adding onion to the mix and a generous coating of cheddar cheese really breathes new life into the potatoes, which may have suffered a different fate.
If desired add chopped chives instead of onions and serve with a dollop of sour cream. Or add crunchy bacon bits, once plated.
Cold leftover mashed potatoes (enough to fill baking dish)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/8 -1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

4. Cover dish with foil or a lid and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
