Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine mashed potatoes, bacon, cheese, chives, eggs and 1/3 cup flour in a large bowl. Check the consistency of the mixture. If it is too moist to form a patty, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Using about 1/3 cup for each one, form the mixture into 12 3-inch patties.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 6 patties and cook until browned on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the patties and continue cooking until golden brown on the second side, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining patties. Garnish with chives, if desired.
