Potatoes are good for you. Potatoes are a veggie that can be utilized in so many different ways. Pasta? Forget about it. I prefer my carbs and starch from root veggies, thank you.
Leftover mashed potatoes can be just lovely on their own the next day but sometimes they need a little extra love and attention.
Sometimes you just want something a little different with your leftovers.
I took some leftover mash that we had, added a few extra ingredients, baked it for about 20 minutes and got an entirely new dish out of some basic leftovers.
Andrea’s Baked Mashed Potatoes
- Leftover Mashed Potatoes
- 5 Green Onions, chopped
- 1/2C Greek Yogurt
Preheat oven to 400. Grease a small baking dish. Combine all above ingredients and place in baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the the edges and top get a crispy brown. Serve hot and enjoy!
Pretty simple right? You could add some cheese in there too and maybe some bacon. Or leftover ham? Heck you could even add some greens in there like spinach for some extra veggie action. Leftovers are what you make of them, and they can be a completely different dish if you allow your imagination to wander a bit.
The measurements aren’t exact, it depends on how much you have left over and how much other things you want to add it. It’s also a great way to stretch the use of some potatoes and save some pennies.
Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
