I've cooked up some potatoes for my tea, but I've done too many! I was thinking of doing something with them and taking them to work tomorrow for my lunch, but I can't think of anything other than potato salad which would involve mayo. How would you use them up?

I would cube them and mix them up with a clove of garlic and some finely chopped red onion with some fat free fromage frais and a little seasoning to make a free potato salad.

Potato scones
Cottage pie topping

Lots of things - or you could just put them in the fridge and use them tomorrow

Ooh lots of ideas, thank you! I like the idea of doing a potato salad with fromage frais. Hadn't heard of that. I'll have a ratch around in my cupboards and see what I can put together, I may have enough stuff to make a soup which would be nice for my lunch! x

I had left-over mash the other day, so I added an egg and a HEA portion of cheese, then shaped them into fairly thin patties (about 1cm in thickness) and fried them in Frylight over a medium heat.

They. Were. Gorgeous. So much so, that I'm going to make them regularly from now on. I make my own tomato sauce and we had them with that.

A fritatta! I saw a fab recipe that had onions and potato in a fritatta with some herbs that you could eat hot or cold - i think it was in one of the starter books actually.

I will try and fish it out at home this evening and post it up xx
