    Default Mashed potato. 3 days ok in fridge?

    Hi all I made some mashed potato Friday. Today is Monday and have some left over in the fridge. Would be ok to heat up and serve with the kids lunch? Or toss it.

    I'd eat it. it's only mashed potato and if it's been covered in the fridge the whole time I don't see an issue?

    http://www.eatbydate.com/vegetables/...piration-date/

    scroll down to the table where it says mashed potatoes last 5-7 days in the fridge. not sure if I'd go that long but I reckon if you use today then toss anything not eaten it should be fine.

    also apply common sense. if they look and smell ok then it should be fine. any discoloration, funny smell or if the liquid has started to separate from the solids? I'd toss.

    I'd eat it. I'm with @turquoisecoast. If it looks and smells OK then go for it.

    Nope everything cooked over 24 hours is turfed no questions asked. My family is very OCD about food though. DH would be in a corner rocking over consuming 3 day old cooked food

    I eat food up to three days after it has been cooked. Left over mash wouldn't last that long with me though...
