Remember how I told you I had a use for the left over potato guts from the grilled potato skins? here it is! ( you did remember to keep the guts didn't you?)
Well, take those guts, some chopped cooked bacon, flour, onion, seasonings, and an egg.
Mix everything but the potatoes together in a bowl.
Add the potatoes and mix it up good. You can use your hands if you want, but it is one STICKY mess.
Make your patties and fry them up in the leftover bacon grease from cooking your bacon. I found it best to NOT premake the patties, as they tend to slightly fall apart until they get a crust around them from cooking. You could just put a spoonful in the pan and press it down to patty size.
Let them get crispy on each side.
Then serve them up! They're good with a little ketchup, and make a great breakfast.
- 1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup flour
- chopped, cooked bacon
- seasonings of choice (salt, pepper, italian)
- onion (only if a certain husband isn't home! lol)
