Mashed potatoes, a little milk, butter, mozzarella cheese and real bacon bits all baked into a delicious little Potato Cupcake. YUM!
I’ve been meaning to share this creation with you for a while now and just haven’t gotten around to it.  But that is no more!  This is such a yummy treat to add to your plate as an appetizer or part of the main course and it was totally thought up by my brilliant husband!

We have been calling them Tater Stickers or Potato Cupcakes.

Potato Cupcakes Recipe


4-5 nice size potatoes make 12 Tater Stickers

Mozzerella Cheese

Bacon Bits

Sour Cream, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Scrub the potato and prick it with a fork to prevent steam from building up and causing the potato to explode.

Put in microwave for 10 minutes.

Take out and peal off the skin – if it doesn’t come right off, put them back in for another minute or two.

Mash the potatoes in a bowl, adding a few drops of milk, butter, real bacon bits and a handful of mozzarella cheese.

Add cupcake wrappers to a cupcake tin.

Fill about 3/4’s of the way with the mashed potato and then add a layer of cheese.  Sprinkle with bacon bits.

Bake in the oven until the cheese is golden, approximately 12 minutes.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top.

We’ve made these several times and our guests always go back for seconds! They have been a hit with the kids as well.

I would love to hear what you think of these if you give them a whirl!
