POTATO AND BACON PATTIES
4 cups cold mashed potatoes
8 rashers shortcut bacon
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 eggs well beaten
1 cup shredded tasty cheese
in a large fry pan, cook the bacon until just brown and any fat is transparent.
cool and dice into smallish pieces. put the fry pan aside to cook the patties in.
Mix mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and black pepper together in a bowl.
stir in the bacon and cheese.(I let the mix sit for about 15 minutes so the flavour goes through).
place about 2 tablespoons of oil into the frypan and heat on medium heat.
(you don't want them swimming in the oil)
place heaped dessertspoons of mix into the frypan and lightly flatten.
cook both sides until golden brown.
add more oil if needed.
serve hot as they are or as a side.
