I'm like Katie E. I envisioned a thread about using taters as the croquet balls and bopping them through the hoops around the yard. Kinda like Frisbee golf.

Anyway. When I've got leftover mashed, I flatten it into patties, usually using the types of extras mentioned above (flour, garlic, cheese, onion) and fry the heck out of them. I guess you could do it healthier and bake them, but then that would be no fun when you have potatoes around.

I make patties also with green onions, cheese, egg, salt, pepper, baking powder, and flour. Then I oven fry them on a cookie sheet with a little oil. The kids love them.

I'm too old to be one of your kids, but would you like to adopt a grandmother?
Those sound great!

Try adding some finely chopped/cooked shrimp to any of the mixtures already mentioned!!!! Crab (real or imitation) would do well too!! I've even used some canned salmon or tuna and had good results.

Left-over mashed potato ...
1) Add a little grated onion and some bacon bits. Form into balls/rissoles/croquettes. Roll in beaten egg, then breadcrumbs, then beaten egg (again) then breadcrumbs (again) Fry for breakfast.
2) Add grated onion, grated cheddar, a little parsley. Same as above with the egg/breadcrumbs.
3) Mix the potato with a tsp of curry powder. Roll into a ball, then flatten into a disc on the palm of your hand. Place a mixture of green peas, raisins, hot pepper and cilantro in the middle. Fold up the edges of your potato "disc" to form a ball again. Dip in batter and deep fry.
To be authentic, your batter should be a mixture of chickpea flour, salt, chili pepper and garam masala. BUT you'll do just fine with a beaten egg, flour and soda/beer!

This is exactly how my mom used to make them I've never tried making them, and in fact forgot about this wonderful dish.
