"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Paige Martin


5 slices bacon, diced small

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup diced sweet onion

1/2 cup diced celery

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/4 cup leftover cold mashed potatoes

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/3 cup flour

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon yellow mustard

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

hot sauce, to taste

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

sour cream, for serving

minced fresh chives, for serving

Step 1: Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until crispy, stirring occasionally 5-7 minutes. Drain off grease and transfer to a large bowl (reserving some for garnish.)

Step 2: In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion, celery, and garlic; saute until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the bacon.

Step 3: Add to the bowl the mashed potatoes, cheese, flour, egg, mustard, pepper, and a few dashes of hot sauce; stir to combine.

Step 4: Form mixture into 8 (1/3-cup) patties, about 1/2-3/4 inch thick.

Step 5: Heat oil in the skillet over medium heat. Fry patties until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side.

Step 6: Serve immediately with a dollop of sour cream, chives, and reserved bacon.
