Potato And Bacon Cakes

(4 servings)

  • 5 slices bacon - cooked and crumbled
  • 1 pound mashed potatoes (great use for left-overs)
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • butter or olive oil for frying
In a mixing bowl, stir bacon, flour and salt and pepper into the mashed potatoes.

Heat a griddle or large fry pan to medium-high with a generous coating of butter or oil.

Form 4 or 5 small hamburger-size patties from the potato mixture and carefully place on griddle or fry pan.

Fry the patties until golden brown on each side (about 5 minutes per side).

A great breakfast side dish. I put this in the International section because it's a recipe from my mom - my Irish mom. Hi Mom! Hi Mr Breakfast! - Katie
