• 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes (or about 4 Idaho yellow potatoes, mashed)
  • 2 thick cut slices of bacon, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic
  • 1 egg
  • spinach leaves
  • poached eggs


  1. Heat a large skillet over mid-high heat and add diced bacon. Cook bacon until it starts to crisp on the one side and then flip over to crisp the other side.
  2. After flipping the bacon, add the chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon freshly minced garlic. Stir and cook until onion is soft and bacon is as crispy as you like it.
  3. Add the bacon mixture to the mashed potatoes with 1 egg and combine well. Form into 4 patties.
  4. In the same skillet over medium heat, cook the patties until seared on one side then carefully flip them and sear the other side to get a nice crispy crunch on the outside.
  5. Place the cooked patties onto a bed of spinach leaves and top with a poached egg if desired. Enjoy!
