Directions

  1. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain; let cool and crumble. Reserve bacon drippings in skillet.
  2. Combine crumbled bacon, potatoes, flour, eggs, garlic, thyme, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Pour vegetable oil about 1/4-inch deep into skillet with bacon drippings and place over medium heat; heat until the oil and bacon drippings shimmer.
  4. Gently drop potato mixture by heaping tablespoon into hot oil and flatten potatoes into small patties about 3 inches in diameter. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes on each side.

I normally don't do unrated recipes. It came out pretty good. I would advise to drain the potatoes as well as you can before mixing everything together. I will also suggest using the dried minced garlic (I believe it was calling for fresh based on the thyme). Would I make it again? sure.

Delicious! We do not care for thyme, so I just subbed some parsley (yes, I know it's not the same, lol). LOVED the flavor of these...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Love this! I don't have thyme so used dried basil instead. It came out great! Definitely a keeper dish.
