Question What should I make with my leftover potatoes?

Yesterday I got a little over-zealous with my potatoes and mashed enough for a small country. After dinner I realized I had waaaaaaaay too much here.
So, what should I do for tonight's dinner to incorporate these spuds?
(PS - I'd prefer not to go the route of frying, if possible)

Thanks in advance

make a casserole with it.

1 pound ground meat + seasonings or fillers you like
1 or 2 cans cream soup (I use mushroom)

top with mashed potatoes (make sure they're really moist, add more milk if needed. Then bake until bubbly on abuot 375.

Toss the potatoes into your FP with an egg or two and some grated cheese and process to combine. Put into a buttered casserole and sprinkle some cheese on top. Bake until heated through and lightly browned.

Shepards or Cottage Pie would be my vote.

Saute/caramelize some onions or leeks, cook some kale and turkey sausage (kale takes awhile so look up to see how long it takes), add some low sodium chicken broth and heat. Add potatoes and thin as much as necessary for kale, sausage, potato soup.

My son loves to split low fat kielbasa in half lengthwise, each piece about 6" long, stuff with a good heaping of mashed potatoes, top with shredded cheese, bake 350 for about 30 minutes or until cheese melts and potatoes are warm and sausage is warm - his comfort food!! Oh, and garnish with an avocado slice (j/k)

Leftover mashed potatoes.....knish!!! Just use your regular pastry dough, roll out and cut into circles (about 6" across) place about 3-4 heaping tablespoons of the cold mashed spud on one side. brush the outer half with egg yolk, seal and do the egg wash bit, sprinkle with dried dill weed and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350. You can freeze these afterwards and just nuke to heat. One plus is that they do not need to be refrigerated as soon if using for a packed luch or what have you. My family loves these!!!

Kitchenelf, we used to do the same thing with hot dogs in the early years of marriage. I was still in school and we had practically NO food budget. That was quite nourishing for the cost. Later I made some for my kids and they loved it - now my grandaughter makes it for her little son and he enjoys it also.

His potato cannon only works with RAW potatoes. I personally would make potato pancakes. The recipe I posted was for raw potatoes, but it works just as well with mashed taters. Look here.

I made.....nothing!
Yesterday morning I looked at a house and loved it, so last night my realtor took us back to the house (this time with husband and kids, even MIL) and they all loved it too! By the time we'd finished looking, it was so late we went out for italian.
I'll be doing the potato makeover tonight.

PS - please keep your fingers crossed - I really need a bid on my house asap! If I get one, I can bid on the one I want.

Jacques Pepin does this thing where he grates a rather strong, hard cheese (swiss, parmesan, etc) into the mashed potatoes, an egg or two, and bakes it like a souffle. It is wonderful. I actually put in a dab of baking powder to get it a little fluffier. Yummyumm.
