My husband Dave came up with a really great recipe for left over mashed potatoes years ago, while he still cooked for a living. His boss was very happy to have a good use for them, so that they didn't go to waste.
If interested, just let me know; he's very happy to share it! It's called The Potato Thing.
Paige~ Here it is!
*The Potato Thing*
About 2 cups mashed potatoes
One Egg *Important, as it holds everything together!
2 tlbsp. parmesan cheese
3 strips bacon, or bacon bits
2 ounces of diced cheddar cheese
Seasoning of your choice
Mix thoroughly in a bowl
Lay on plastic wrap, then fold wrap over to form a rectangular shape.
Unwrap and fry in pan with a little butter until golden brown -OR, if you're like me, until it's black and tasty! ;)
Note: you can actually have fun with this and add any ingredients you want. The only essential one is the egg.
Let me know if you like it, OK? To PM me would be best way, as I don't really cook (I married one!) and don't usually look at this forum.
We used to make a dish called "Shami" with leftover mashed potatos - especially if no milk was added when the mashed potatos were made. You take the cold leftovers and mix with cooked ground beef, form into patties, and fry until browned. Serve with lemon wedges and parsley.
