Delicious! I never ever thought that peanuts would taste so good with potatoes, onions and
vegetables! I made this recipe twice. I do not purchase fresh herbs, they are prohibitive in price where I live so I used dried thyme, not ground thyme. I used roasted red sweet peppers in a jar.
I used corn the first time, creamed corn the second time and slightly drained it through a strainer. I used dry roasted peanuts with sea salt. They have more flavor and are not as salty.
I used a 1/3 cup of the mixture to press down in the pan. The pattie would not stay firm so it could be turned. I used 2 tsps white flour and stirred it in the bacon vegie mixture. It worked beautifully. (Both times I had to use the flour) I would suggest that 2 slices of bacon be used to get more bacon flavor. I served with sour cream. You are very creative. This is a meal!
If you made small little ones for appetizers make sure you have a posted sign that it contains peanuts. This is really good. I will post 2 different photos.
