Simply Smashed Potato Cakes

My kids love these Simply Smashed Potato Cakes and so will yours. Unlike the usual individual, smashed, whole potatoes, I’ve designed a recipe that involves boiling in garlic and then mashing the potatoes, first. Once smooth, add chicken broth, Greek yogurt, panko breadcrumbs, shredded cheddar cheese and scallions and shape your own individual patties, then cook in bacon drippings until crispy and delicious! Just the sound of these are mouthwatering!

To make Simply Smashed Potato Cakes, you will need the following ingredients:
