how long are mashed potatoes good for once stored as leftovers?

My guess is 3 to 4 days....would this be accurate?

  • I wouldnt keep mashed potatoes for more than 1-2 days.  I guess it depends on the food really but being mashed. I would not keep it longer than 2.

  • After three days I would toss them :)

  • Eh mashed potatoes (cooked potatoes in general be it baked, diced, etc) can start smelling and get funky quick. If instant, toss after the meal... Or toss before you serve them! LOL! For real, I'd say a day. I definitely wouldn't be pushing it though.

  • I only keep leftovers for a couple of days. Then I toss them if noty eaten.

  • I won't eat leftovers past the next day, but hubby would eat them a week after if I left them in the fridge that long. He has no qualms about expiration dates LOL
