Servings: 6


  • 1/4 cup bacon bits
  • 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced chives
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, bacon, cheese, and egg.
  • Mix until ingredients are well blended.
  • Generously spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Scoop out the potato mixture and press into the muffin pan, making sure to fill the holes and flatten the top.
  • Bake in a 400-degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until the paddy cupcake tops are golden brown.
  • While the paddy cake is cooling, prepare your sour cream. For a decorator’s touch, place the sour cream in an icing piping bag with a tip.
  • Decorate the muffin top as you would a cupcake with the sour cream. Sprinkle chives on top.
