  • 6 cups cubed Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 3 1/2 cups panko, divided
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


In a large Dutch oven, combine potatoes and add water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer 10 to 12 minutes, or until tender. Drain well and mash.


In a large bowl, combine potatoes, 2 cups panko, egg, cheese, bacon, onion, butter, sour cream, garlic, salt and pepper. Form potatoes into 3-inch patties; dredge in remaining panko.


In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add potato patties, and cook, 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until brown and crisp. Serve immediately.
