  • Combine crumbled bacon, potatoes, flour, eggs, garlic, thyme, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.

  • Pour vegetable oil about 1/4-inch deep into skillet with bacon drippings and place over medium heat; heat until the oil and bacon drippings shimmer.

  • Gently drop potato mixture by heaping tablespoon into hot oil and flatten potatoes into small patties about 3 inches in diameter. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes on each side.

Cook's note:

Keep pancakes warm in 275 degree F (135 degree C) oven.

I normally don't do unrated recipes. It came out pretty good. I would advise to drain the potatoes as well as you can before mixing everything together. I will also suggest using the dried minced garlic (I believe it was calling for fresh based on the thyme). Would I make it again? sure. Read More

Very good... I oven fried instead. Use the bacon grease on the bottom of a cookie sheet spoon on and flatten. They needed about 15 minutes per side. I didn't drain the potatoes but would next time. Read More

These were amazing. The only thing I added was half an onion diced to add to the savory flavors of garlic and thyme. I served it under poached eggs and ketchup. It was a hit with me and my girlfriend and we will definitely be using this for quick weekend breakfasts in the future. Read More
