Snack Cup Of Potatoes

contest winner icon

I wanted to do something similar to the twice baked potatoes. I found some seasonal paper drinking cups ($0.25 on clearance) for containers. These cups are the stiff paper ones, not waxy. They are from a party supply store.


First I made a batch of my cheesy spinach potatoes. I filled the cups half way and placed them in a freezer bag, upright, until frozen. Once they are frozen, they no longer need to be upright.

When I am looking for a snack, I just take one out and pop it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Then just stir and eat! It is so good and it doesn't burn in the corners like store-bought! When my husband brings them for lunch, I just place a square of cling wrap and a rubber band to hold it in place! You could wrap the whole cup, it would just cost a little more. Don't worry about any ice crystals, shake them out or leave them in! A satisfying snack that leaves you happy and guilt-free. Enjoy.

Hey I just tried it with green bean casserole and it works too! I would have never thought of using other foods! I am always trying to find quick and easy ways to eat(and serve) green vegetables, Thanks!

I love this idea, Especially because, I thought it would be a great idea when I have my Kids or grandchildren pop in unexpectedly, And I need to cook things quickly for their hungry tummies. These are a great idea. And we all love twice baked potatoes!

Thanks for sharing! :)
