    I usually cut em up, pan fry with onions, bell peppers,
    and garlic. Voila, breakfast potatoes.

    You could scoop them out of the skins and make gnocchi.

    -Twice baked potatoes-scoop out the insides, mash and mix with sour cream, shredded cheese, bacon and green onions. Put filling back in shell and bake until heated through
    -Lyonnaise Potatoes - an old steakhouse classic - peel the potatoes slice into 1/4 inch slices and fry on the flattop, in butter, with sliced onions
    -Hash of any form (its not just for breakfast
    -use a filling for pierogies
    -my wife makes a simple, yet awesome, Hungarian "casserole" with layers of sliced potatoes (pre cooked and peeled) slices of dried Hungarian sausage, slices of hard boiled eggs, and sour cream, that gets baked until hot and bubbly

    You could make potato salad. Or you could cut them up and freeze them for later use.

    if you have a bunch, thin slice em and make easy peasy scalloped potatoes.
    Or possibly even a buttered layered pave' dish.

    Are you making the gnocchi with cold potatoes? Or are you reheating them?

    Not sure, the OP just stated left over baked potatoes. I've personally only made gnocchi from a baked potato that has cooled just enough to handle through a ricer or something, so not entirely sure if the same process would be used for a cold potato or if you would need to heat it up.

    I’m sorry for late respond, yes we have a bunch of them most of the time. We end up giving them to club members or throw them away. Thanks everyone for inputs, definitely will try the recipes!
