Leftover mashed potatoes?

I always make a large amount of mashed potatoes when I make them and am always also looking for different ways to re-create them for the next few meals. Here is one of the ways I use them, but would love to see your recipes for leftover mashed potatoes!


4 kinds of lunch meat, 2 slices each, chopped
2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cups mashed potatoes
2 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 2 quart casserole. Mix the lunch meat, cheese, bread crumbs, oil and any spices you might want to use (I use coarse ground pepper and a dash of garlic powder). Spread 1 cup of the potatoes on the bottom of the casserole, then brush with melted butter. Cover with 1/3 of the lunch meat mixture. Repeat 2 more times and top with the last of the mashed potatoes and butter. Bake about 15 minutes or till golden brown. Makes 4 servings

Have a wonderful day.

me too, the potato pancakes.

I also put a light bread coating on them to make it a little crispy outside against the soft texture inside.

Additions for the inside are green onions and/or cheddar.

Here arew a few more I discovered and tried: These came from Good Housekeeping

Ham Fritters

In a bowl combine 2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes, 1/2 cup chopped ham, 1 green onion, finely chopped and 1/4 tsp pepper. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and form mixture into 1/2" thick patties. Put 1/4 cup flour in a dish and coat patties with flour and tap off any excess. In a skillet heat 1/4 cup oil till hot. Working in batches fry the patties 5 minutes or till golden brown on both sides, turning once. Serves 4

Broccoli Soup

In a blender puree 1 quart chicken broth and 10 oz frozen (thawed) broccoli. Transfer to a 4 quart pot and heat to boiling, Whisk in 2 cups mashed potatoes and 1/2 tsp pepper. Simmer on low heat 10 minutes. Stir in 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Top with chopped parsley and cheese. Serves 4


In a bowl combine 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes, 1/2 cup sauerkraut, chopped and 1/4 tsp pepper. Put a scant tablespoon of this mixture in the center of wonton skin wrappers and dab edge of wrapper with water. Fold and pinch edges to enclose the filling. Put under damp paper towels and repeat with the remaining fillling. Cook in a 6 quart pot of salted water 3 minutes or till dough is cooked through. Drain well. Serve with sour cream and chopped parsley. Makes 28

Sausage Scramble

In a skillet, cook 8 oz of sausage stirring to break up and transfer to a small bowl when cooked. To the skillet add 1 red bell pepper, chopped, 1 small onion, chopped and 1/4 tsp pepper. Cover and cook 5 minutes or till tender crisp. Add 2 cups mashed potatoes and cook 5 to 7 minutes or till potatoes are hot, stirring often. Stir in sausage. Serve with poached eggs and sprinkle the top with chopped parsley. Serves 4
