Cook It Once, Use it Twice – Mashed Potatoes

I have been dying to write another article for this series and I am finally getting it out to you!  This series is all about making a dish and being able to remake the leftovers into one or more equally delicious dishes/meals.  Not only will you get more bang for your buck, you’ll also save some time by using something that has been premade the night before.  I love eating well and it is a definite bonus for me to save money and time!

This week’s dish: Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are one of my favorites!  Who doesn’t love homemade mashed potatoes?  IF you have leftovers (leftover mashed potatoes are a rarity at my house)  there are several things you can do with them.

  • Make shephards pie (like a chicken pot pie or a beef pot pie but topped with mashed potatoes instead of pie crust or biscuits).  Any kind of meat and veggies will do.
  • Mashed Potato Pancakes: Add an egg and a 1/4 cup of flour to about 2 cups of mashed potatoes. Pour or spoon batter into a skillet with a couple Tablespoons of vegetable oil.  Brown both sides of the potato pancake.
  • Make Mashed Potato Soup: I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but it looks delicious!

Do you know any other great ways to use up leftover mashed potatoes?

  1. My grandma used to use them to make potatoe dumplings too. I think she would make them plain or filled with leftover ham that she had frozen.
