I bet this recipe would work perfectly for sweet potatoes, too! This is so much easier to make than your usual potato patties and you don’t have to deal with frying them individually. My mother and father told me that my family must really like making this casserole because we seem to have it all of the time. We certainly do! And this dish is so delicious I bet it was first invented by a grandmother! Plus, it helps us to not be wasteful.
What are some ways that you use leftover foods to create other meals?
2 c leftover mashed potatoes
1/4 c grated cheddar
1/4 c grated Mexican cheese mix
1 pinch grated cheddar
1 pinch grated Mexican cheese mix
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c bread crumbs, dry (maybe a little less)
Mix together potatoes, 1/4 cup of each cheese, salt pepper, egg and bread crumbs.
Melt a pat of butter in a glass pie dish. This will keep potatoes from sticking and add flavor. Place potato mixture in dish and spread evenly.
Top with remaining pinches of cheeses and bake for 30 minutes at 400F.
Quick tip: Add leftover shredded chicken and you’ll get a full meal!
