Ingredients

3 slice
bacon
4 c
cold leftover mashed potatoes
2
eggs
1 tsp
onion powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
ground black pepper
1 c
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
Mix the mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; stir in the crumbled bacon and Cheddar cheese.
3
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.
