Are your kids left scanning the Thanksgiving dinner table spread with frowns on their faces? Maybe they’re not into the traditional turkey, green beans, and boring mashed potatoes?
Have them help make some Cheesy Potato Bites with this seriously kid-friendly cheesy potatoes recipe.
This Cheesy Potatoes Recipe Couldn’t be Easier
They’re super quick to make since they use Idaho Spuds right out of the pantry. No peeling potatoes or baking for hours required. They’re made with 100% real Idaho® potatoes (no partially hydrogenated oils or gluten here, either) and are ready for this recipe in just 4 minutes.
We used the Three Cheese flavor – which uses real Cheddar, Romano, and Parmesan cheeses for all it’s cheesy yumminess. But you could actually try this recipe with any of Idaho Spuds’ 5 delicious flavors of mashed potatoes: Roasted Garlic, Country Buttered, Creamy Ranch, Supreme Baked, and of course, Three Cheese.
Here’s how to make ’em…
Easy Cheesy Potato Bites Recipe – Perfect for the Kids
- 2 cups Idaho Spuds Three Cheese Mashed Potatoes (prepared)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 green onions, chopped
- salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease a mini muffin pan and set aside.
Prepare the Idaho Spuds Three Cheese Mashed Potatoes according to package directions.
Measure out 2 cups of the prepared mashed potatoes for this recipe. (Let the kids snack on the extra while the cheesy potato bites bake!)
Mix the eggs, mozzarella cheese, and green onions into the mashed potatoes until well combined.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, fill muffin cup in the pan with cheesy potato mixture. My kids love to help with the scooping.
Bake 15-18 minutes until tops of bites are slightly golden.
Cool for one minute in the pan before removing.
