Savory Bacon and Parmesan Potato Hash Cakes

This post brought to you by KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.


What do you get when you combine breakfast favorites with the savory flavors of parmesan, garilc and thyme? THIS.



We love the warmth of hash browns in the morning, the’yre crispy, flavorful and my kids love them. I decided to spruce them up a bit, adding bacon, KRAFT parmesan cheese, garlic, green onions and spices, and I love the way it turned out!


If your family loves breakfast potatoes and hash browns, try these at home. I stopped by my local Vons, which is a Safeway store, to pick up all of the ingredients. KRAFT Natural Cheeses are always fresh, so the stand up pouch of parmesan worked perfect!


Savory Bacon & Parmesan Potato Hash Cakes



  • 4 cups freshly shredded potatoes
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup KRAFT Natural Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup green onions (set a little aside for garnish)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. ground or fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • sour cream (optional)



Combine the potatoes, KRAFT parmesan, garlic, green onions, and spices in a mixing bowl. When thoroughly mixed, gently stir in the bacon, then the egg, making sure to coat the entire mixture.



Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. When it’s ready, scoop the potato mixture into the skillet, making little haystacks. Cook each for 5 – 6 minutes on each side then flip them, smashing them down flat.


When finished, remove them from the skillet, top with sour cream, and garnich with extra green onions. Here’s what you get…



I am so happy I chose KRAFT Natural Cheese in this recipe, they come in a new stand up pouch that uses less packaging, yet still has the 2 cups of delicious cheese.

  • Now these sound and look good! I am all for healthy, but for a Sunday breakfast or lunch these would be terrific. I would have to whip up an egg though for hubby!

  • These look like a great easy dish to make, love the simple ingredients and how easy this is to whip up, great for those busy nights. And the dollop of sour cream on top looks awesome!

  • These look delicious. My husbband loves hasj browns and these he would really like. I often add things when cooking them, but this is a new and good combo.

  • I love this, any kind of potato is my kind of dish! This would be perfect for our upcoming weekend get together, I’m sure everyone will be lining up for seconds. What do you use as a shredder? Is it okay to use a peeler?

  • these look absolutely delicious. I have never shredded my own potatoes but I bet they make for a better hashbrown. I like the sour cream added on top. yum!

  • Oh my goodness this looks wonderful! I know it would be a huge hit with my family. They love hashbrowns and parm cheese, so it’s perfect for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I can’t wait to try it!
