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.

How To Make day after thanksgiving stuffed mushrooms & potatoes

Test Kitchen Tips
We baked our potatoes in a 400-degree oven for about one hour. Then let them cool before we made the recipe.
  • 1
    Clean the mushroom with a damp paper towel. Remove the stems and reserve them.
  • 2
    Using a spoon, split the baked potatoes in half. Remove the flesh of the potato leaving the shells intact.
  • 3
    Add the potato to your mashed leftovers. Preheat oven to 350.
  • 4
    Chop the onions and the mushroom stems finely. In separate pans, sauté the onion and mushroom stems in a little bit of butter until tender.
  • 5
    Add the mushrooms to your stuffing.
  • 6
    Add the onions to your potato.
  • 7
    Crumble the bacon and add to the mashed potato with the cheddar cheese, mixing well.
  • 8
    Using a spoon, fill the mushroom caps with the stuffing mixture.
  • 9
    Fill the potato with the potato mixture.
  • 10
    Sprinkle 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.
  • 11
    Check the mushrooms after about 30 minutes as they will likely finish before the potato. Garnish with the chopped parsley and enjoy! :)
