Yield: 6-8 large potato cakes



  1. In a large pot, bring the potatoes in salted water to a boil and cook just until potatoes are tender but not falling apart.
  2. Drain well and mash with the back of a spoon or potato masher.
  3. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, butter, and flour. Mix well.
  4. Add in ¼ cup of the crispy onions and ¼ cup bacon bits. Mix until well combined.
  5. Divide potato mixture into 6-8 equal balls and pat into rounds, about ½˝ thick.
  6. In a shallow bowl or on a plate, mix remaining crispy onions and bacon bits. Lightly coat each side of potato cakes.
  7. Heat a deep non-stick frying pan with about ¼-½˝ oil over medium heat. Gently shallow fry the potato cakes, 2 at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes each side until light brown and heated through. Keep warm.
  8. Garnish with extra crispy onions, bacon bits, and fresh chives.
