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.

Ingredients:

Cold leftover mashed potatoes (enough to fill baking dish)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/8 -1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese  

Directions:

1. Mix the chopped onion into the cold mashed potatoes. Add milk a little at a time, if the potatoes are too stiff and/or thick.

2. Put potato mixture into a greased 9 x13 baking dish and spread/mash evenly into the dish.

3. Sprinkle shredded cheese over top of potato mixture.

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