  • 1 (3.74 oz) package or 1 cup Value size Idaho®Spuds™ Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, prepared
  • 1 cup Scallions, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup Bacon, cooked, chopped
  • 1 Egg, large
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • Vegetable oil, as needed


  1. Combine Idaho® Spuds™ Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with scallions, bacon, egg, panko bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  2. To create a potato cake, scoop the mixture into ¼ cup portions. Flatten the portion and shape into a potato cake. Continue until all the cakes are made.
  3. Place flour in mixing bowl and dredge the potato cakes one at a time in flour, making sure to coat evenly. Shake off excess flour.
  4. In a large frying pan on medium heat, add just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When oil is hot, pan-fry potato cakes until golden brown on both sides, about two minutes per side. Place on a paper towel to drain. Serve immediately with Fry Sauce.
