How to Make Loaded Potato Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry the bacon until crispy and drain on a paper towel until cool. Crumble into small bits. Place the bits into a large bowl.
  2. Pour off all but 2 Tablespoons of bacon grease from the frying pan and over medium heat cook the garlic and onion until translucent.
  3. Add the bacon bits along with remaining ingredients (except butter/margarine) and blend well with a spoon or your hands (it'll be sticky).
  4. Wash and dry the frying pan, then melt 1 Tablespoon of butter or margarine in it over medium heat.
  5. Scoop up about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture and form into a ball. Place it in the hot pan, flattening it out until it's about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  6. Fry for about 3 minutes on each side, until they are lightly golden brown. Serve immediately, while hot and crispy. Top with green onions, sour cream or ketchup as desired.
