Loaded Potato Jars (10 Minute Meal)

Loaded Potato Jars Recipe


I saw these loaded potato jars on TheGunnySack and fell in love!

Not only did they take less than 10 minutes to make, but oh-em-geeeeee were they delicious!

You’re not using a real potato for this so no need to wait for it to bake (which is honestly the reason why my family doesn’t usually eat potatoes…they take soooo looong!). And I have to say, I’m loving the single serving jars idea! It’s fantastic if you wanted to use them for a party, family barbeque, kids get together…you get the idea!

The rest of the ingredients otherwise fall right in line with what you would expect on a loaded baked potato, just substitute the potato for instant (which you can easily get for under $1.00 on sale) and you’re all set!

What You Will Need…

Instant Potatoes
Shredded Cheese
Green Onion (chopped)
Bacon bits
Sour cream
Salt & Pepper

How To Make Loaded Potato Jars…Loaded Potato Jars Recipe

Simply mix the instant potatoes as per the directions on the box, and fill a small jar halfway.

Then mix in your desired amounts of bacon bits, sour cream, and shredded cheese.

Top with more shredded cheese and bacon bits, and place the jars on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

Top with chopped green onions and enjoy!

      The measurements would depend on the directions found on the instant potatoes you decide to use…the bacon bits and other toppings are added as your taste buds see fit;)
