These Baked Cheesy Potato Cakes with Bacon are so delicious! A tasty savoury side made with creamy mashed potatoes mixed with cheddar cheese, sour cream, thinly sliced onions. The potatoes are wrapped with crispy bacon and topped with tasty, crunchy parmesan topping.

I find when you add cheese and bacon to recipes, everything tastes better, especially mashed potatoes. These baked cheesy potato cakes make for an impressive side to your protein – this is a company’s coming side.

baked cheesy potatoes wrapped with bacon – the simple details,

First, let me say the recipe is so easy that you could do it almost blindfolded…honestly. First, you boil the potatoes, then mash and add cheddar cheese, sour cream and thinly sliced green onions.

Some call them spring onions. The onions are what make the difference in this fluffy potato mixture. Once the potatoes are ready, form four balls and shape them into a two-inch high cylinder.

Wrap with bacon slice and secure with a toothpick. Dip the bottom into gluten-free bread crumbs adding a crunchy base. Then, sprinkle the tops with a mixture of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

The potato cakes are now ready to be baked. Place them in the oven and bake until the bacon is crispy, and the tops are golden brown. They are sooo good!

Can you make the baked potato cakes in advance?

I love these cheesy potato cakes because you can prepare them in advance and place them in the fridge until you are ready to bake them. About 40 minutes before you are serving dinner, pop them in a hot oven.

They will take a little longer to bake if the mashed potato cakes were chilled.

By preparing the cheesy potato cakes with bacon in advance, you will have extra time to make a salad or enjoy a glass of wine with your guests.

what to serve with cheesy potato cakes wrapped with bacon?

This potato side is so versatile that you can serve it with just about anything. I would recommend serving the potato cakes with a good stew or a pork rib roast. For a veggie side, I would add sauteed spinach with garlic or maple ginger roasted carrots. Enjoy!
