I always seem to have leftover mashed potatoes in my fridge. This is a great recipe to use them up.

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon slices, crumble, and set aside. Leave the bacon drippings in the skillet.
  2. Mix the mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; stir in the crumbled bacon and Cheddar cheese.
  3. Form the mixture into 8 patties. Heat the bacon drippings over medium heat, and pan-fry the patties in the drippings until crisp on each side, about 4 minutes per side.

OMG! OMG! OMG! Saw this yesterday while surfing the site. Hours later was checking the fridge for something to whip up quickly and BINGO there were the mashed potatoes a pack of bacon and some shredded cheddar. Was running late- dinner a must in 45 mins. OK Lets try this! OMG! It was quick, easy and out of this world good.Served them up with some baked eggs and fresh fruit for a quick dinner and was instantly hailed as a kitchen hero by 4 HUNGRY teens. Thanks rae! this one will definitely be a permanent keeper in my house. LOL my hollow legged 19 yr old just walked by and asked if he could make these for breakfast!!!

Potatoe cakes are an iffy animal. Couple of tips: If they seem to not hold together well, try adding a little flour to help thicken them up, and also, it is a must that they be well browned before you try to turn them.

Rae: I tried making these cakes and had a heck of a time trying to keep them together when browning them. They fell apart completely so I just mushed them all together and the result was still outstanding. I just read your note about potatoes being cold when making the recipe. My potatoes were NOT cold so now I know what I did wrong. I'm trying it again with cold potatoes because the flavor was awesome and I'm not giving up! Now you know why I am the "recipe mangler."
