Pimento Cheesy Potatoes

This will definitely be my “go to” leftover mashed potato dish, it’s incredible. Sometimes I use my regular mashed potatoes, and sometimes I do a mash with sour cream, butter, and cream cheese.  It’s a better presentation, if the potatoes are tighter and a bit chunky mash.

  1. Amounts of each ingredient are really optional and strictly to your taste. At home, I make a bit leaner version than for the hunters at the lodge!
