  • 5 to 6 medium uncooked red potatoes, peeled and shredded (3 cups)
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • oil for frying

Rinse and thoroughly drain potatoes.  In a bowl, combine the potatoes, bacon, onion, eggs, flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg.  In an electric skillet, heat 1/8″ of oil to 375 degrees.  Drop batter by 2 heaping tablespoonfuls into hot oil.  Flatten to form patties.  Fry until golden brown; turn and cook the other side.  Drain on paper towels.
