Mashed Potatoes (about 2 ½ cups -3 cups)- I used Yukon potatoes
1 cups shredded white cheddar cheese -I used Kerrygold cheese
3- 4 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
2 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon sour cream
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
2 tablespoon panko bread crumbs
1 tsp salt and pepper
2 to 3 tablespoon vegetable oil, for frying- I used grapeseed oil
Combine the mashed potatoes, cheese, crumbled bacon, green onions , sour cream, flour, bread crumbs and salt and pepper in a large bowl and stir to combine. Tip Make sure your mash potatoes are chilled.
Shape the rounds into 1/3 inch thick patties using your hands. .
Lightly oil the bottom of a cast iron or non-stick pan with the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Cook the potato patties for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until golden brown, and then place on a paper towel lined plate. Let cool slightly before enjoying. Drizzle with DivineKuizine remoulade sauce.
