Should last a couple of days. Freeze any leftovers - but eat them on the day you defrost them, or if you defrost in the 'fridge overnight, the next day.

One abfab thing to do with leftover mashed potatoes is this: Mix with equal parts creampuff pastry. Chill. Form golf ball-sized balls, roll in fine breadcrumbs seasoned with salt and a little Parmesan, and deep fry.

Or: Chill. Form into patties, dredge lightly in seasoned flour, and fry like hamburgers.

Catseye, I've done a similar thing w/the puff pastry, except seasoning the potatoes well, then rolling out a whole sheet of puff pastry, and placing a line of the potatoes down the length of the sheet; then roll up the sheet, brush w/ egg wash, cut into 1 inch sections, and bake at 425 til the pastry is golden brown - easy and inexpensive appetizer!

Bubble n squeak is good, too!

Cold mashed potatoes, mixed with any leftover green veggies - cabbage and/or sprouts is traditional..

Fry an onion until golden, but not too brown - mix into the potatoes, along with the cabbage. Heat a frying pan with a little oil fill with the potatoes/green veg stuff and shape into a cake. Brown on the bottom. Turn or put under a grill until brown on the top.

Serve with lashings of HP sauce.

Or Tattie scones is good, too.

Cream puff pastry? Do you buy it or make it from scratch? I've seen sheets of it but, never cream?
