  • Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot; mash slightly.

  • Stir bacon, blue cheese, milk, egg, green onions, salt, and pepper into the pot; mash mixture with a potato masher to desired consistency. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Shape the potato mixture into twelve 1/2-inch thick cakes; dredge in bread crumbs.

  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 4 potato cakes; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining potato cakes. Cover and keep warm.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute bacon grease for the olive oil and butter if desired.

The cakes can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. Add 2 minutes per side to cook through.

Really liked these. The blue cheese added an extra depth of flavor. Had to make two separate batches since the grandkids don't like blue cheese. I thought they were much better with the blue cheese than without. Read More
