How to Make Betty's Potato & Bacon Patties


  1. Peel and chop potatoes into smallish even chunks. Boil until soft in a pot, remove the water and mash well.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, cut the bacon into small dice and fry well. Set aside on kitchen paper.
  3. Cut the onions as fine as you can. Place the mashed potatoes, cooked bacon, cheese, onion, egg, bread crumbs and celery salt in a bowl. Use your hands to mix. Shape into 8-10 patties. Place on a plate and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour (can be made the day before)
  4. Heat the oil in a large fry pan, gently place the patties in the pan and fry each side for 3-4 minutes. Don't over crowd the pan, you might need to cook in batches.
