    Looks and sounds delicious. Our family also has a recipe for using left-over mashed potatoes. Toast a couple slices of bread, then cut into cubes. Melt butter (or margarine) in a frying pan and toss the toast cubes in the butter, then add the mashed potatoes and heat through. Very tasty!

    Just wanted to let you know my hubby loves my “cheesy potatoes” but I take the easy way.
    Make and mash potatoes a dollop of butter, add cheese whiz ( I like lots, but you do it to the way you like it), then add about a cup of frozen peas. The heat from the potatoes thaws the peas and it is just like having fresh picked uncooked peas in the cheesy potatoes. I don’t make this often now because the cheese whiz has gone up so much in price. Am still looking for a good quick cheese sauce to make up that has a similar taste.
    But when cheese whiz goes on sale ( or we are having guests) and I want a simple punch to the meal then this fits the bill.
