Leftover Baked Potato Recipes

Potatoes are such an affordable and versatile ingredient that is very common in the American kitchen. But what happens when you overbuy?

Maybe you’ve prepped too many baked potatoes for a potato bar. Maybe you just love baked potatoes, but you need a twist to this classic dish. Or maybe you know that tomorrow is going to be busy and you want to be able to reuse tonight’s dinner the next day.

This collection of recipes takes your leftover baked potato to the next level.

Each of these recipes clearly uses baked potatoes. But you could always just cut up your leftovers and make a simple potato salad or hash browns.

Several of the recipes we found have raw potatoes in the ingredients and then have you baking the potato at the beginning. You can skip this step and go straight to the good part!

I tried to stick mostly with russet potatoes because it’s the favorite way to bake a potato. But a few will have Yukon or red potatoes.
