Leftover roasted potatoes: not good.

Why do my leftover roasted potatoes taste amazing right out of the oven, and really disappointing for lunch the next day? Other roasted vegetables don't seem to change in the same way as potatoes do.

Also, what's a better way to prepare potatoes with leftovers in mind? (not counting mashed potatoes)

I sometimes boil potatoes so I can have them ready whenever I want them. Sliced up on salads, or eaten with aioli.

Smash'em. Pan Fry'em in duck fat (or vegetable oil). Season heavily with salt and pepper. This is delicious.

We make a simple hash brown with the potatoes, onion and green bell pepper (and lots of black pepper) and then put a fried egg on top.

I'm with ipk. Why not use them for breakfast instead? Turn them into hash or home fries.
