1/1 Photo of Potato, Bacon and Sauerkraut Patties
bluemoon downunder's Note:
Try this for breakfast: creamy mashed potato, with tangy Sauerkraut and smoky bacon in a pattie! Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Recipes website. The original recipe is obviously an Edgell recipe and listed in the ingredients 1 cup (100g) Edgell Instant Mash. Zaar would not accept this as an ingredient, so I have replaced it with 2 cups of mashed potato. If you do track down - or regularly use - Edgell Instant Mash, the step now removed from the instructions is "In a medium bowl combine the Edgell Instant Mash and 1 1/4 cups of boiling water". To use canned instant mash would obviously be a time-saver! Depending on whether cream or milk has already been added to the mashed potato, you may like to add some in step 2.

- 410 g edgell sauerkraut, well drained
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar, to taste
- 1 teaspoon caraway seed
- fresh ground pepper, to taste
- salt, to taste (depends on how much salt has already been added to the potato and sauerkraut)

- 1Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large (preferably non-stick) pan, add the bacon and cook for about a minute, then add the onions and cook for another minute, or until the onion is just beginning to soften. Put the pan aside for use later in cooking the patties.

- 3Shape the mixture into 1/2 cup patties. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the pan used for cooking the bacon and onions, add the patties and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
