Bakin’ With Bacon and the King

Standard

Happy Bacon Saturday friends!    Let’s COOK!

Today’s recipe is one that I THOUGHT I’d shared with you before but when I did a “search” on my bacon posts it didn’t pop up.   SO, even if I have done it for you before, I think we all need reminding about some of the incredibly delicious combinations that are tastier than they sound.   Like for instance who would think of putting bacon and bleu cheese together?????      Well, I did and apparently a lot of others did too!     Wanna try it?    Good.   Let’s do this………..

BACON AND BLEU CHEESE POTATO PANCAKES

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 2 pounds potatoes, cubed
  • ⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter           

Directions

  • Step 1

    Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels; chop into smaller pieces.

  • Step 2

    Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot; mash slightly.

  • Step 3

    Stir bacon, blue cheese, milk, egg, green onions, salt, and pepper into the pot; mash mixture with a potato masher to desired consistency. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Pour bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Shape the potato mixture into twelve 1/2-inch thick cakes; dredge in bread crumbs.

  • Step 5

    Heat olive oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 4 potato cakes; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining potato cakes. Cover and keep warm.

     

Doesn’t this sound delish?   Well the ROYAL MOM thinks so – not only is she a potato pancake nut she is also a bleu cheese nut (in fact so is the ROYAL DAD!).    So of course we had to try this one out on the parents and oh boy oh boy it was a BIG HIT.

So what are you waiting for?   This might be a good addition to your Labor Day Breakfast on Monday!

It’s good to be King………and spread the news about great bacon dishes!!  

Your King, Teddy of Baconia

  2. This recipe sounds delicious Teddy! But alas, they will not be on our menu. Alex is allergic to potatoes and Mom is allergic to blue cheese.
    We will be having Bacon tomorrow! Mom is going to make the Bacon Quiche Tarts you guys did a few weeks ago. Mom is going to make them and freeze them for suppers/lunches. She will not be around much over the next 2 weeks. Mom is working as the registration person at the advance polls and an Election Officer for the regular voting day for the Canadian federal election. We may not get to comment, but we will be reading!

  3. Bacon and blue cheese together is always a winner. Thanks for what appears to be another yummy in the tummy recipe, especially as fall approaches. This would be great comfort food on a cool day.
