Greetings Loyal Subjects of Baconia! Your King has a recipe to share!
That’s right – but this one is a little different because it’s actually a recipe for something you can make with your LEFTOVERS from Thanksgiving dinner………..if you’re like my Mom you always have lots of leftover mashed potatoes. She goes nuts making mashed potatoes (blame my Dad because he loves mashed potatoes with gravy). ANYWAY, this is a delicious little recipe that makes something that’s yummy for the day after – especially BREAKFAST! They’re delish with scrambled eggs or whatever.
BACON-CHEDDAR PATTY CAKES
3 (or more!) slices of bacon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups of mashed potatoes
1 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
1 cup shredded cheddar
- 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.
- Mix the mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; stir in the crumbled bacon and Cheddar cheese.
- 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.
Is this EASY OR WHAT???????????????????
Yes I hear you…………………..they are delicious too. You can make them ANY SIZE you want. Silver dollar size or larger……..they kind of melt in your mouth too. What a treat. So – give this one a whirl on your “post-Thanksgiving guests” who stick around for breakfast the next day OR your family. You’ll be getting some hugs from this one!
Be sure and come hang out in the kitchen next week – we’re getting closer to Thanksgiving and I’ll have another recipe for you!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll go take a ROYAL NAP in the ROYAL CHAMBER……it’s tough work being King AND the Baker for the Castle!
