Happy Sunday Everyone!
On New Year's Eve I made mashed potatoes and over did it just a bit. Actually, I never mind as I enjoy using the leftovers in other recipes. I made two different dishes this morning with my leftovers and I thought I would share them. Like I said, I over did it a bit :)
First, I love leftover mashed potato pancakes. My grandmother would make these for me, so very happy memories.
All you need is
2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes
1/4 cup of flour
salt and pepper if you like
The consistency should be like thick cake batter.
My second item is of course soup. I call this
Waste Not Want Not Soup
Here's where the waste not want not comes in. I basically use whatever I have. Whenever I serve broccoli, I like to cut the stems off, but I save the stems for soups and pasta dishes.
You can also use leftover peas and or carrots. This soup is great for using in your casserole recipes that call for creamed soup. It's a lot lower in calories and I think it tastes better.
