If you’ve ever wondered what to do with your leftover potatoes, wonder now longer. These ideas are so delicious, you’ll probably make extra potatoes next time you cook, just so you can make these.

Spread the potato chunks on a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet, drizzle on some olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and roll them around the pan until they’re well coated. Even without any stirring during cooking, they brown on the side that touches the pan and get a nice exterior crunch, while remaining soft and tender at heart.

2. Mashed Potatoes:- If you have leftover boiled potatoes, you can heat them up, adding some milk and butter. Then mash to your desired consistency. You can also try this with roasted potatoes, but it may be trickier if your potatoes are particularly crispy.
You can serve the mashed potatoes as a side dish. You can make a shepherd’s pie, potato bread or potato croquettes.
