- 1⅕cupsmashed potato,cooked
- salt,to taste
- pepper,to taste
- cheddar cheese,grated, to taste
- bacon,chopped, to taste
- sour cream,to taste
- scallion,chopped, to taste

Peel and grate the raw potato, then wrap it in a clean towel and squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible.
Put the grated potato into a large bowl, then stir in the cooked mashed potato and the flour. Stir in the melted butter, then season , if necessary.
Add a bit of milk and stir, then add a bit more milk until all of the milk is combined into the mixture and produces a somewhat sticky dough. If it’s too wet, add a bit more flour.
Dust hands and work surface in flour, then grab a palm-sized amount of the mixture, flattening it out to about ¼-inch thick.
Spoon some grated cheese and some bacon bits into the center, then drop another flattened out dough mixture piece on top. Cut into a nice round shape using a cookie cutter, making sure it’s fully sealed.
Fry in butter over medium heat for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Serve topped with a tablespoon of soured cream and a few bits of scallions, and enjoy!
Try not to make these too thick or they might not cook all the way through, if they are thick, lower the temperature to a low-medium heat instead.
