This recipe gave me just the inspiration I needed to use leftover mashed potatoes, rotisierie (sp?) chicken and grilled pork loin chops. I subsituted and/or added a few things I had on hand such as leeks for onions, added leftover chicken and pork chops cut into 1/2" chunks, diced celery and fresh corn right off the cob. Plus, stock was made from the chicken carcass and used to enhance the richness of the base along with the milk and butter. I, also, peeled and chopped a few potatoes into 1/2" chunks then sauteed the veggies lightly in olive oil, added enough stock to cover then combined all the ingredients with the mashed potatoes in a stock pot and let simmer with just a splash of rice wine vinegar for brightness. The stock was made with a few whole pieces of celery and onion then added in some fresh herbs (bay leaf, rosemary, sage) as well as a few flakes of dried red pepper. My husband loved it, and the fresh corn cut off the cob added a wonderful sweet "pop" as you ate. (Yes, corn and potatoes are both starches, but the combo works.)
