1 C. each: Mash Potato/Sweet Potato

This is a great way to use up your leftovers, this recipe can be flexible with everything but the kitchen sink!
Lay out 2 sheets of pastry dough and roll out with some flour to thin it out a little. Cut in half, horizontally, to create 2 large rectangles. Each rectangle can be cut into 3 smaller rectangles. Start adding about a tablespoon of each ingredient in the center of your rectangles. In a separate small bowl, whisk your eggs with a little water to make a egg wash. Using a small pastry brush, run it along the edges. Fold over and use a fork to crimp the edges shut. Brush more egg wash on top of pie and cut a small slit on top to vent any steam. Bake in oven at 350 degrees 1015 minutes until golden brown.
