What Can I Do With Left-Over Mashed Potatoes?

Q:

I have some extra mashed potatoes from yesterday’s holiday meal, any ideas that I can fix my family?

A:

loaded mashedLeft over mashed potatoes can be just as popular with your family as left over pizza is at my house, I love it.

Make a vegetarian meal with sautéed onions, mushrooms, red peppers, in a broth or take the ingredients for a chicken pot pie and top your mashed potatoes. Left-over turkey works great for this.

One of my favorite restaurant inspired mashed potato dishes used left over Idaho® potatoes and turned it into a “loaded baked potato” taste.
