Leftover Potatoes and Broccoli

Sometimes there's too much of one leftover.  Do you get that occasionally?  Last week's party left us with a bit too much mashed potatoes to eat.  I started our nights of leftovers with this recipe.  It's so super simple, I almost didn't post it.  However, it was tasty, comforting, nutritious, and my kids ate it up.  Therefore, it qualifies for a posting.

HERE'S ALL YOU NEED TO DO

  • leftover mashed potatoes

In a small salad bowl, line bowl with mashed potatoes, leaving a well in the center.  Coat the well with about 2-3 tablespoons of sour cream.  Fill well with 1/4 cup of cheese, then poke in broccoli. Season with salt & pepper  (See picture above)  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3-4 minutes, or until broccoli is at desired tenderness.  Allow to stand 1-2 minutes before serving.
