I really want Arby's to bring back their loaded potato cakes. So I was thinking about that earlier, and then I thought about the leftover baked potatoes I had from the night before. I figured I'd get in the kitchen and try to replicate it. They actually turned out pretty good!

Laura's version of loaded hashbrowns is delicious! The cakes are crispy outside with a warm, creamy center. We love the bits of bacon and cheddar cheese in every bite. Serve warm with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce and you'll be in hashbrown heaven.
