Adapted from Potato Bacon Cakes by Darina Allen
  • 9 medium to large potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 4 TBSP self rising flour
  • 2 stalks green onion, diced
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once potatoes have started to boil, reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until tender.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking start frying the bacon in a large frying pan.
  4. Cook bacon until crispy and remove from pan.
  5. Pour out some of the bacon grease from the pan into a small container, but do not rinse the pan. You are going to use this same pan to cook your potato cakes.
  6. Once your potatoes are done, drain and mash.
  7. Mix in the diced green onion, chopped bacon and flour.
  8. Add salt and pepper to your tastes.
  9. Mix well.
  10. Begin making patties out of the potato mixture and place them in the pan.
  11. Fry on both sides until golden brown.
  12. If you need to make more, use the saved bacon grease to grease the bottom of the fry pan and start another batch.
