New Mexico Hash Brown Potato Patties
I am not an expert steemit poster with beautiful photos or videos, but if you like spicy well seasoned foods I think you will find these to be far superior in the catagory!
I pkg of Simply potatoes plain hash browns or 20 oz of frozen hash browns thawed.
1/2 to 1 spanish onion chopped fine
1/2 of 8 oz bag of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
7 strips of peppered bacon fried crisp (Save all the bacon grease)
1/2 of 14 oz jar of Chopped New Mexico Hot Green Chile
1 egg whipped
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a bowl whip egg, mix in green pepper, add chopped onion, add cheddar cheese, add potatoes, and add crumbled bacon.
Put bacon grease and extra lard in non stick skillet and heat to about 375degrees F (I just put a kernel of popcorn in the oil and when it pops, the oil is at the right temperature)
I just use my hands to make little larger than golfball size to place 4 in skillet. Use spatula to flatten out to 1/2" thick Pattie. Fry about 5 minutes before trying to flip. Cook other side about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels several minutes - eat and enjoy!!!!
