Recipes for leftover mashed potatoes

I’ve tried all these recipes and they all work well.

Mashed Potato Biscuits 

Adapted from the Mashed Potato Biscuits recipe, posted on Recipezaar by Bunlady.

Recipezaar page says this produces 16 biscuits, but I’m usually only getting 8 per batch if rolled out 1/2 inch thick. Original recipe had less mashed potatoes, more salt.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2-5 tablespoons milk

Mix in a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender cut in shortening and mashed potatoes until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough milk to moisten mixture. Turn dough out on floured board and knead 6 to 8 times. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. Place on baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown
