Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Using leftover stuffing for mushrooms is genius ... and delicious. These stuffed mushrooms and cheesy stuffed potatoes are a great way to reinvent your holiday leftovers. They'd be great for watching weekend football.

Note: We baked our potatoes in a 400-degree oven for about one hour. Then let them cool before we made the recipe.

whole mushrooms large size
whatever stuffing or mashed potato you have left over from Thanksgiving

parsley, Italian
2 large
1/2 lb
crisp bacon
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c
Panko bread crumbs
1 stick
