Bring on the Leftovers

If you’re wondering what to do with your holiday leftovers, especially mashed potatoes, look no further. The versatility of Idaho® potatoes makes them unique in that they taste great reheated or they can be transformed into a completely new dish.

If you wake up still thinking about the creamy mashed potatoes served the night before, try whipping up a batch of Potato Pancakes. Using ingredients already in your refrigerator like shredded cheddar cheese, cabbage, pinto beans, eggs and bacon you can make pancakes that satisfy everyone’s taste buds.

For dinner, consider Shepherd’s Pie, a quick and easy one-dish meal. By using ground beef or turkey, frozen veggies and leftover mashed potatoes you can have a satisfying dinner on the table in no time at all.

Or if you just want to enjoy the mashed potatoes a second time, simply transfer the potatoes to a microwave safe bowl or saucepan, cover and heat until warm. Enjoy!
