Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
