Parmesan garlic bacon potato patties

December 21, 2018

A while back I made these parmesan garlic & bacon potato patties as I was craving a rosti style potato but with a little more flavor. These patties are super easy to make and are great for a side dish or even serve them up as appetizers. You can even add in some extra stuff if you wish, like veggies or shredded cheese, just remember to alter the points. These tasty bites of potato heaven are just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle

        10 servings – so this makes 10 patties ?

    Could you make these with already shredded hash browns? And if so about how many cups?

      To save on time, I use shredded hash browns (3 cups) and packaged bacon pieces (2 tbs.). According to my recipe builder, each patty is 1 freestyle point. Love these 🙂

          If you use the packaged bacon pieces, what do you use to fry them in?

            Hi Cheryl, you can use just a bit of olive oil 🙂

    Glad to know they freeze well. Would you reheat from frozen or thaw first? And then microwave?
