If you've never thought of enjoying a baked potato out of a Mason Jar, you're not the only one. But we think that after trying this recipe you will be convinced that it's actually an amazing idea. This recipe for 10 Minute Loaded Potato in a Jar tastes just like a loaded baked potato without having to wait for a potato to bake!

Instant mashed potatoes makes these loaded potato pots quick and easy, while bacon bits, cheese, butter, chives and sour cream make them creamy and mouthwatering. Pop them in the oven 8 minutes before dinner and you have a perfect comforting side dish.

We also love that this side dish looks really terrific. It's the perfect dish to impress your family or guests, and it's a great choice for when you want to provide single-serving sides for a group.

I love that this idea uses little crocks for the potatoes. I never thought of presenting my guests with a cute little side in a small container all on it's own. I can't wait to have a dinner party and serve my guests this side to see what they think, but I will have to spend the time to make homemade potatoes because everyone always wants me to make them fresh. I can save a ton of time with the bacon bits though.

This is a really cute idea for presenting loaded mashed potatoes. I would opt for using real butter in the recipe instead of the Country Crock, along with cheddar or cheddar jack rather than the colby jack. For an added kick, I might also add some shredded pepper jack cheese on top. I like the idea of being able to customize each individual serving. My wife isn't a fan of things with heat, while for me the hotter, the better.

I think this recipe is great. I want to serve it at the dinner table when I have guests as a side dish. I think it will be a definite conversation starter. I like this new trend of eating out of jars. I ate a salad out of a jar the other day at a restaurant. It was fun, I felt like a kid with a lucky packet.

Yeah. Talk about a convenient way to bring lunch to work. For that alone this is fantastic!

These are a great for work lunches - add a salad and it is a complete meal. The author mentions that the jars she used were not oven safe - be sure to find jars you can put in the microwave to reheat (without the lid!). Inexpensive and yummy lunch.

Individual servings make for a unique presentation! The recipe is pretty good, but the presentation is what really sells it. YUM

I love jar recipes! They make things so much more fun and give it a rustic feel.
