  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 large skillet


  • 4 cups shredded potatoes fresh or frozen
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup green onions set a little aside for garnish
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. thyme ground or fresh
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes, parmesan cheese, garlic, green onions, and spices. Mix thoroughly, then gently stir in the bacon, then the egg, coating the entire mixture.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil. When it’s warm, scoop the potato mixture into the skillet, making little haystacks. Cook each for 5 – 6 minutes, then flip them and smash them down flat.
  • When finished, remove potato cakes from the skillet, plate them, and garnish with sour cream and the extra green onions.
