Left over mashed potatoes

What are some ideas for left over mashed potatoes?

I have a recipe for some great cheese potato balls that are perfect for left over mashed tators, but I'd like to try something new!

You can add bread crumbs & chopped green onions, and flatten them into patties, and fry them on a skillet. Yum!

Another idea:

Ground beef, cooked with your favorite seasonings, topped (in a casserole dish) with cooked carrots, peas, corn or whatever you have in the kitchen. Add a bit of beef broth and mix around to coat. Top with leftover mashed potatoes, which have been mixed with some butter. Put in oven (400 or so) till tops are golden.

You can fry them for hash browns in a bit of Canola oil and flip until brown.
I make Potato Pancakes out of them. Use 4 cups of cold left over mashed potatoes.
Put flour on the counter. Mix about 3 cups of flour or so into the mashed potatoes and kneed together on the counter like dough. No not the kind you spend though you may need it.
Flatten them to about 1/4 inch thick. Using a container cover, cookie cutters, etc.. shape them to make them fun or roll out and flatten and shape by hand. Fry in margerine or butter until golden on each side. I like them with Apple butter.
A friend made these on St. Patricks day and put green food coloring in them and served with a green jelly.

My favorite is to make them into patties and fry.

For breakfast there is little better.

But how about a shepherd's or cottage pie?

Or make it into knishes (Google for recipes).

Or get some cod and make cod fish cakes.

Or, I suppose, you could add a bit of very finely minced ham, make them into balls, bread, and fry.

Just a few thoughts, enjoy.

I'd cook up some fresh veggies, mix it in to the potatos and top with cheddar cheese.

I love potato croquettes, a different name for some of the methods described about, but...
You can put them in the nuke, make a little well in the center and put a couple pats of butter in, re-heat, and they taste just as good as they did the night before.
