Loaded Potato Filling

  • 1-1/2 Cups Prepared Alsum mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped bacon, fully cooked
  • 1/4 Cup Green onions, sliced
  • 1/3 Cup Cheddar cheese, shredded


  • 8 Slices Sourdough bread, sliced
  • 4 Ounces Unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Cup Cheddar cheese, shredded


  • 8 Each Mini sweet gherkins


  • To make the loaded potato filling: in a medium sized bowl, combine the prepared mashed potatoes with the sour cream, bacon, green onions, and cheddar cheese. Hold until ready to grill the sandwiches.
  • Slice the sourdough and set aside.
  • In a small bowl mix the butter and the mayo until well combined.
  • Spread one side of each slice of bread with the butter mayo mixture.
  • Preheat a griddle, flat top, cast iron pan, or large saute pan oven medium-high heat. Place the bread buttered side down on the preheated surface of your choosing. Sprinkle every other slice of bread with ¼ cup shredded cheese. Spread ½ cup of the potato filling on the slices of bread that do not have the cheese. After about 1-2 minutes sandwich the pieces together so that there is a potato side and cheesy side. Adjust the heat to low and occasionally flip the sandwiches so they brown evenly. The idea is to brown them evenly over the low heat, all while slowly bringing up the temperature of the potato filling. Once the sandwiches are hot on the inside and bread is golden, remove them from the heat.
  • Cut in half and stab each one with a toothpick and a mini gherkin. Serve immediately.
