What can we have for dinner with mashed potato that doesn't take ages to cook and isn't sausages?

Got mountains of potatoes to use up, so am going to make mash. But what to have with? Mind has gone blank!

I would mash grated cheese into it, and serve with bacon and/or baked beans. Yum.

chicken with garlic and lemon. You can wrap breasts with garlic etc in tin foil and bake. Make gravy using chicken stock and lemon. Quick and easy.

Or cook and slice them instead to go on top of bolognese sauce?

But I would do mash myself and eat itfrom the pan. Yum.

OK, I'm going to be a bit more inventive. How about a creamy layered Dauphinoise potatoes with some chopped crispy bacon, and/or leftover chopped chicken if you have some, and something like spinach or cabbage and onions? All mixed up and baked? Yum.

Have you got any cabbage? I made rumbledethump last night and DH asked if we could have it every night! Thinly sliced cabbage and onion, mixed together put in the bottom of a casserole dish. Top with about 100mls water then top with mashed potato. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top and bake for 1 hour - yummy! Bit like bubble and squeak but baked.

Any pork loin you can cut into steaks? For some reason it's been half price at Tesco for aaaaaaaaages. I got a loin in my shop today for 9 quid and have cut up into TEN loin chops. Bargain!

Oh dearest lovely Mumsnetters. Thanks for all the suggestions. In the end it was bubble and squeak (had cabbage and broccoli also to use up) with bacon, peas and brown sauce. Shameful yum.

But what a collection of brilliant ideas Grin. Thank you.

Well that sounds like a commoners version of my Dauphinoise potatoes with bacon and cabbage, so I win. Grin
