A very simple and obvious one, but I love Bubble & Squeak. It's one of the best bits about having a roast dinner I think. I usually form the remains into patties, dust with flour and lightly fry in a non stick pan with a drop of olive oil (slightly less calorific than cooking the traditional way with dripping).

Cottage Pie and Shepherd's Pie are faves of mine too (with minced left-over lamb or beef) and rissoles. I love rissoles with home made tomato sauce and rice.  :)

Couldn't agree more @Skiddaw, home made shepherd's/cottage pie made from fresh or with left over is great, in fact we are having shepherd's pie tonight, with the left overs from a lamb dish with had a couple of days ago.

Mrs KK put's grated cheese on the top of the potato and then grills it :)

Red wine doesn't really go with it, but I force myself ;D
