  • Stir in ham, corn and half of the onions. 
  • Scoop mashed potatoes back into skins, mounding tops. 
  • Sprinkle with cheese and remaining onions. 
  • Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven or toaster oven until hot and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. 
Serves 4 and is fairly easy and quick to make. Great for kids, teen or students. Nice change for a quick lunch as well.
