Potato, Bacon and Sauerkraut Patties

READY IN: 14mins




  • Heat 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.
  • In a medium-to-large bowl, combine the mashed potato, (optional) sour cream, the well-drained Edgell Sauerkraut, the egg, the cooked onion and bacon, the brown sugar, the caraway seeds and freshly ground black pepper, and (if necessary) salt, and mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Shape 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.
  • Serve as part of a "big breakfast" or with barbecued sausages.
  • TIP: Chopped fresh herbs such as parsley or thyme can be added in step 2.
