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?
