Dip these baked loaded mashed potato tater tots into my creamy loaded potato dipping sauce. They are the perfect healthier way to use leftover mashed potatoes!
I am totally getting ready for all the future holiday parties coming up.
My favorite part of a good holiday party is the appetizers. Appetizers are one of my favorite thing to make (and eat.) They are delicious little bites of tastiness that I can never turn down.
More than one dinner in my life has consisted of solely apps. And I’m not ashamed, not even a little bit.
I’ve been experimenting with lots of different recipes and this recipe for baked loaded mashed potato tater tots is going to be a party pleaser.
Baked Loaded Mashed Potato Tater Tots
This really is the perfect recipe for the holidays. I used instant Supreme Baked Mashed Potatoes to make these tater tots and added a dash of loaded mashed potato ingredients to bring out the flavors even more.
In all honesty, it wasn’t necessary because the mashed potatoes have so much flavor on their own. But, these are named loaded, so I loaded them up.
This recipe would be PERFECT for the day after Thanksgiving or Christmas. You can make a big batch of mashed potatoes for your holiday dinner and then use the leftovers to make these tater tots.
Plus, they’re baked. Which means they’re healthier than any fried tater tots you may be craving.
Don’t worry, once you have one of these you’ll be craving baked loaded mashed potato tater tots all of the time.
I couldn’t make an easy appetizer recipe without making a dip to go with it.
Originally I was going to add sour cream to the tater tot recipe but I made a last-minute decision to exclude it. But, you can’t have a loaded baked potato recipe without sour cream.
Enter the Loaded Baked Potato dip. It’s creamy and has all of the flavors of your favorite loaded baked potato. Just add baked loaded mashed potato tater tots.

In a medium bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, egg, flour, cheddar cheese, bacon and chives with a wooden spoon. Pour panko bread crumbs onto a medium sized plate.
Use a melon baller to scoop out the mashed potato mixture and place the mashed potato ball into the panko bread crumbs. Roll the mashed potato until covered, then use your fingers to form it into a tater tot shape. Place on pan.
Repeat until all the mashed potatoes are covered in panko, refilling the panko plate as needed.
Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, turning the tater tots once halfway through baking. Remove from oven and serve hot.
To make the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Chill for 20 minutes before serving.
