That big pot of mashed potatoes we had for supper last night, we had for leftovers tonight. I still have what's left in the photo above! We will eat the smaller bowl (I put the quarter in there so you can see the size) for leftovers again tomorrow (good thing we love mashed potatoes but that's why I make so much all at once!). On the right, I took some mashed potatoes and formed them into something my Mom used make called "potato pancakes". These are really good. I froze them and will make them someday with maybe eggs or waffles. This is a great way to use up some leftover mashed potatoes.
I could also use the leftovers on the left to make a dish we fondly call "Gloop-Glop". Yes, we named this dish ourselves! It is a hamburger casserole. First fry up some hamburger (3/4-1 lb), mix with a can of drained green beans and an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. Add some minced garlic. Put into 8 X 8 inch casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Put mashed potatoes on top and bake. Yum Yum!
