Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays! Every year, we make sure to prepare enough potatoes that leftovers are guaranteed. My family absolutely loves them (for me, the gravy and potatoes are the real star of our Thanksgiving table).
This year I did something fun using those leftover potatoes, and I invited cheese and bacon to the party! Along with the Idaho Potato Commission, I’ve come up with a recipe for a crispy, cheesy, perfect potato cake that serves as a great side dish, snack, or main course! Your whole family will love these – I know mine does! And side note: the sauce is wonderful and will change your life.
I hope you get some time to enjoy your family this weekend. And that you get to making these little gems. They are an absolute treat. Enjoy!
Yield: 8 large or 16 medium potato cakes

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
