Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes

Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes

Host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," Alfonso Ribeiro is teaming up with his wife, Angela, to make this hearty appetizer.
Ingredients
  • 1.5 lbs mashed potatoes
  • 1.5 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup italian breadcrumbs
  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Ranch dressing (optional)
  • Chopped green onions (optional)


Directions

1. Combine the mashed potatoes, both cheeses, crumble bacon, flour, garlic powder, onions and egg in a large bowl and stir to combine. Chill the mixture, covered, for about 15 minutes, up to 24 hours.

2. Use an ice cream scoop with a trigger release handle to scoop potato mixture into small 2 inch rounds. Shape the rounds into ⅓ inch thick patties using your hands. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl and coat potato patties on both sides with breadcrumbs.

3. 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 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown, and then place on a paper towel lined plate. Let cool slightly before enjoying. Dip in either sour cream or ranch dressing.
