Madhouse recipe : Mashed Potato Bake

This is a bit like a cross between pasta bake and twice-baked potatoes and is a great way for using up leftover mashed potatoes, as well as any odds and ends in the fridge !

 Mashed Potato Bake

ingredients :

2 onions
300g bacon pieces
2 leeks
4 mushrooms
leftover mashed potato
seasoning (I used salt, black pepper, garlic granules, black onion seeds, ...)
crispy grilled onions
grated cheese
tomato wedges

Fry up the bacon and onions.

Add the mushrooms and leeks.

Heat up and season the mash with whatever herbs and spices you want. Feel free to add butter and milk for a creamier texture.

Add in the bacon/leek/mushroom/onion mixture and stir to combine.

Pour into an ovenproof dish and top with crispy fried onions.

Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Lay tomato wedges on top and bake at 180° for half an hour until the cheese has melted and the tomatoes have cooked. 

I served it with leftover grilled meat and sausages from the barbecue.

Linking up with #KitchenClearout because it used up leftover mash and the odds and ends from the fridge.


  1. I love mash - this sounds great.

  2. Mmm! Just the perfect bake/mash. Might try this today.

  3. I love mashed potatoes, but we rarely have any leftovers. A pie sounds like a totally legit idea to cook loads of mashed potatoes.

  4. delicious - another great meal for using up whats in the fridge and so versatile
