We use to have them when I was a kid and then I haven't had them in years. I just started making them again for dinner and breakfast once in a while but they aren't your normal potato cakes, they are like loaded baked potatoes LOL.

I put bacon, onion, garlic, cheddar cheese, ham cubes and sour cream in them. I don't think I could eat them everyday but I could probably eat them once or twice a week.

They are good, you just have to make sure that the mashed taters are a little on the thicker side or when you put them on the griddle they spread out too far and are almost impossible to flip LOL

I forgot to add that they are filling and very time consuming when adding all that stuff to them, it is different when it is just straight up potatoes.

No egg, just the ingredients I listed. The key is to have the mashed taters thicker but not too thick.

There isn't really a specific recipe, kind of whatever you would like in them. I make mashed taters first, they can be instant or homemade. Keep the mashed taters on the thicker side so they don't fall apart on the griddle when you flip em. They are basically potato pancakes just with a lot of extras in them. Once the mashed taters are made add whatever you want in them. Like I mentioned before I put sharp shredded cheddar cheese, onions, garlic, bacon or ham cubes and sour cream. Mix it all up and then place a large scoop like you are doing large cookies and flatten them a little and brown on both sides.

I think we are going to be making some tonight now that I posted that LOL

STARVING!!! What do you like to serve with that or is that the primary entree? I'm thinking ribeye over charcoal, potato cake, salad and frosty drink.
