Lesse, throw an egg in them and form into patties. Fry on both side till 
golden crisp and you'll have roasted garlic potato pancakes. You can also 
use them to help thicken a soup or stew or just make roasted garlic potato 
soup out of them. I don't have a recipe but a little chicken stock and some 
imagination should do ya'. Or just warm them up and serve with another 
dish.

Yum - what Michael said - plus they would make a good topping for a 
shepherd's or cottage pie:


* Exported from MasterCook *

                        Cottage or Shepherd's Pie

  1              pound  ground beef
  1                     onion -- chopped
  1                cup  mushrooms -- sliced
  2               cups  mixed vegetables, frozen, or chopped fresh
                        Italian seasoning
                        salt and pepper to taste
                        gravy
  2               cups  mashed potatoes

SautÚ the meat, breaking it apart as you do.  Leave it sort of pinkish, 
since you don't want it overcooked.  Drain off any excess fat and add the 
onion.  SautÚ until the onions are translucent, then add mushrooms, 
vegetables and seasonings; sautÚ a minute or two longer.  Mix in the gravy 
and put into a baking dish.

Cover with mashed potatoes and put into a 350║F. oven for about 45 minutes, 
until the potatoes are beginning to brown and get crispy around the edges. 
Remove from the oven, make a well in the center and add a gob of butter 
(optional).  Serve hot.

NOTES : Remember:  It's cottage pie if made from beef and shepherd's pie if 
made from lamb!!

Dora,

Why not make a few fish cakes with some cooked kippers, simply coat in
beaten egg and breadcrumbs and pan fry for a few minutes?

Yum

Graeme should be turning into a trout by now, not a kipper.  :~)

OOh, they make a _wonderful_ additive to soups!
One of my fondest childhood memories was that lentil soup with mashed 
potatoes. :-) I think I was maybe 4.....

Alternately, add some eggs, beat them well and make potato pancakes. A 
sprinkling of bacon bits and off you go!

Is this a trick question? Heat the mashed potatoes up and
eat them with steak, turkey, whatever? No need for a special
recipe in that situation.

My mom used to make patties out of leftover mashed potatoes
and fry them for us for lunch.

I don't see the problem, though, heat them up and eat
them!!!!

Shepards Pie -- Basic method: Brown some ground beef along with
chopped onions in a frying pan; spread beef 'n onion mix into the
bottom of an oven proof casserole; spread mashed taters on top; bake
at 325F for a half hour or so or until the taters are lighlty browned
on top.  Many variations are possible using different or additional
veggies and meat.
