ISO uses for leftover mashed potatoes

Can anyone tell me what I can do with leftover mashed potatoes besides potatoe pancakes?

They can be used to top a casserole, sprinkled with cheese and browned. Add them as a binder in salmon croquettes and also, believe it or not, as an ingredient in a candy. I've heard of the candy but don't have a recipe for it. Dilute them down and turn them into a creamy potato soup.

I make mashed potatoes in ten pound batches then, if they achieve leftover status, I freeze them. Add a little extra liquid and they are just fine. If there's gravy in the fridge, they don't last.

As far as immediate uses, my first thought was Shepherd's Pie.

If there is left over gravy, they just get eaten within a day or so. Otherwise made into a cream of potato soup or casserole topping as Katie said.

What about as a binder for crab cakes along with egg.
Never tried it, and never have enough left overs to amount to anything.

I love leftovers mashed potato fried. It is one of my favorites. But if you do not want to fry them you can add them to soup, when soup is ready just add potatoes let it cook just until soup boils done.

Stir some sour cream, chives, bacon, salt and pepper into your leftover mashed potatoes. Spread in a casserole dish and sprinkle with your favorite grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until heated through.
