Refried Mashed Potato

This is a very simply recipe that I learnt off my dad. It's a great way of using up leftover mashed potato, especially as part of a morning fry-up.


  • 1 bowl of mashed potato
  • enough oil to thinly cover the bottom of your frying pan


  1. Heat up the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. I recommend using a non-stick frying pan as otherwise you'll find that the crispy potato bits stick to the pan.
  2. Add the mashed potato to the frying pan and press down so that it's well spread out in the pan.
  3. Fry for 5 minutes and then turn over. It doesn't matter if it breaks up as you turn over, this will just mean that the crispy bits end up inside the mashed potato.
  4. After another 5 minutes remove the mashed potato from the pan and place on a plate.
Serves 1 or more, depending on how much mashed potato you have.
