Looking for a way to use your leftover mashed potatoes? These loaded mashed potato bowls are a super fun and easy way to jazz up meal time. You can use letover meat from a previous meal or use your favorite Thrive Life meats from your storage. My favorite Thrive Life meat to use in this recipe is the Pulled Pork. The best part about this pork is it’s on sale for 40% off for Black Friday!!

Check back on November 22nd and order yours at almost half off the regular price. This is the least expensive I have EVER seen one of their meats go on sale. This pork works perfectly in this recipe. Use the Thrive Life Corn in this recipe for a sweet and tender addition.

  • Place a portion of the mashed potatoes into each person's bowl. Top the potatoes with the BBQ meat, corn, tomatoes, onions and cheese.
  • Serve warm so the cheese can melt through the entire bowl.
