I love Thanksgiving, and begin preparations for it at least a month in advance. Between the mental prepping, shopping, cooking and cleaning, by the time the meal is served I am pooped. Usually I barely eat and I just sit down and watch my family enjoy my hard work. I also firmly believe in Thanksgiving leftovers! That’s why I always make at least double the amount that I need to. I figure that since I will be doing all of the cooking anyway, I mine as well make enough to eat for a week after Thanksgiving. The problem with that however is that I get tired of food quickly. Hence the need to get creative with leftovers. This is why we joined forces with Kraft to create a recipe that you will love! If you need more inspiration, check out the Cooking Up Good website.

These Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potatoes are perfect. Crunchy on the outside and smooth in the center. Put a fried egg on top for breakfast, eat them plain for lunch, or add a salad a call it a night for dinner.
I actually made and froze about 15 of these for easy future meals! I’m feeling very accomplished today 🙂 Yes, they are that good!
Now you can certainly get creative with these savory pancakes. There is certainly enough cheese in the cheese isle at Walmart to change it up every single time! Next time, I may try shredded mozzarella and make them like little mini pizzas after frying. Hey, the possibilities are endless!
- 3 cups cold mashed potatoes
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup cooked chopped bacon
- Oil for frying
Combine egg, flour, cheese, and bacon with your mashed potatoes and mix well.
Scoop out 2 inch balls and roll the smash like a pancake, about 1/2 in thick.
Heat oil in a large pan on medium high heat.
Add potato pancakes and cook each side until golden, about 2 minutes on each side.
Serve immediately or freeze for later use.
