Best garnished with cheddar cheese, and served with poached or fried eggs, these
sizzling patties are made up of mashed potatoes, sauteed bacon, leeks or onions.
Recipe is by Janette McLintock, the Chieftain's wife and one of the organizers of
the Annual San Diego Scottish Highland Games & Gathering of the Clans.
4 rashers of Bacon (Diced)
1 small leek or onion (finely chopped)
1 cup chopped mushrooms
8 oz cold mashed potato
Pepper, garlic powder and a pinch of salt seasoning mixture
1 egg beaten
Extra eggs for poaching/frying
3 tablespoons fine oatmeal or cornmeal
Oil for frying
Grated Cheddar Cheese
Fry up the diced bacon then sauté the leek or onion and mushrooms in the bacon grease.
Scoop out the onion and mushrooms and set aside to cool. Add the mixture to the cold
mashed potatoes and add the seasoning. Mix together well and shape into flat patties
about 1/2 inch thick. Dip the patties in the beaten egg and coat with oatmeal or
cornmeal. Fry in hot oil until lightly brown on each side. Top with a poached or
fried egg and top with grated cheese.
