I made these the other day for game night, and they were an instant hit



2 cups of mashed potatoes (best with russet or Yukon gold potatoes)
1/4 cup of crispy bacon bits
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of freshly chopped chives
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
Salt and pepper, according to preference

Heat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and ensure your muffin tin is well-greased.
Blend the mashed potatoes, bacon, chives, Parmesan, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
Distribute this mixture into the muffin tin, making sure each slot is generously filled.
Garnish each muffin with cheddar cheese. For a cheesy surprise, consider embedding some cheddar inside.
Let them bake for 20-25 minutes until they turn golden-brown with melted cheese on top.
Before serving, let them sit for a few moments to cool.
