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.


1 pkg
whole mushrooms large size
whatever stuffing or mashed potato you have left over from Thanksgiving
1 medium
sweet onion
1 c
parsley, Italian
2 large
1/2 lb
crisp bacon
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c
Panko bread crumbs
1 stick
butter, melted
6 medium
baked potatoes

How to Make Day After Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms & Potatoes


  • 1Clean the mushroom with a damp paper towel. Remove the stems and reserve them.
  • 2Using a spoon, split the baked potatoes in half. Remove the flesh of the potato leaving the shells intact.
  • 3Add the potato to your mashed leftovers. Preheat oven to 350.
  • 4Chop the onions and the mushroom stems finely. In separate pans, sauté the onion and mushroom stems in a little bit of butter until tender.
  • 5Add the mushrooms to your stuffing.
  • 6Add the onions to your potato.
  • 7Crumble the bacon and add to the mashed potato with the cheddar cheese, mixing well.
  • 8Using a spoon, fill the mushroom caps with the stuffing mixture.
  • 9Fill the potato with the potato mixture.
  • 10Sprinkle the tops with the Panko bread crumbs with the remainder of the butter and bake in a preheated oven in separate pans for 45 minutes.
  • 11Check the mushrooms after about 30 minutes as they will likely finish before the potato. Garnish with the chopped parsley and enjoy! :)
