Cook them longer. Or you can make potato pancakes out of them.

So you just didn’t quite cook the potatoes enough before you drained them and started mashing? When I do this I put in a big chunk of butter and a splash of milk, put the lid on the pot, and put them back on the heat on low for a bit.

@.twist.: Throw in some mayo, a little bit of mustard, some relish, chopped onion, celery and a boiled egg or two, and call it “Mashed Potato Salad”, viola.

When you add butter and milk, it needs to be done on the stove as microwave cooking doesn’t always work when you have to fix a blunder.

Mix in alittle sour cream, chives, and bacon put into a small backing dish cover with cheese and make twice baked mashed.  Or mix with ranch and cover with cheese.

@.twist.: Well, in that case, I’d then second what @darkness: and @Ember78: have suggested. Back on the stove, with the lid on, more butter and milk. Or sour cream and cheese, just for shits and giggles. 

Good luck? Lol.

Melt a little butter in a frying pan.  Take a lump of the potato mix and make a meatball, then flatten it in the frying pan with a spatula.  Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side without moving it, so it gets crispy.
