5 Uses for Leftover Mashed Potatoes

Mashed Potato Bread and Rolls

If you like mashed potatoes, there's a good chance you like other starchy foods, too. Well, you can take those leftover mashed potatoes and use them to make potato bread and potato rolls. Typical recipes include ingredients like milk, butter, flour, sugar, salt, yeast and eggs, and may even add some items like nutmeg, cinnamon and lemon peel to give the bread and rolls some sweet undertones.
