Christmas Leftover Tart

VERY seldom do we have leftover mashed potatoes!  It seems no matter how many I mash they disappear BUT just in case I thought I'd share this SUPER EASY and delicious Italian Potato Tart that is absolutely the perfect way to use up leftovers.
This tart is so flexible; you can add leftover veggies... use ham instead of bacon.... sweet potatoes work also (never tried it with a very sweet potato dish so let me know if YOU do).  Anyway this tart and a nice big mixed green salad are just the ticket if you have been eating as much as I have these days!
Easy Cheesy Bacon Potato Tart

Ingredients for 4 servings:
4 Cups mashed potatoes (or more)
8 ounces Shredded Mozzarella
8 ounces Shredded 4 Cheese Italian
8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled (use ham if you have it leftover also)
2 eggs beaten
1 T. Parsley copped
1 t. salt
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil divided
1/2 cup bread crumbs divided

Method:

Coat an 8 X 8 inch pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil and dust with ½ of the bread crumbs
Beat the two eggs and add to the bacon and potatoes along with the cheeses, parsley and salt.
Mix together and spread into the tart pan.
Top with remaining bread crumbs and drizzle with remaining olive oil.
Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.
