Posted by: Jerseygirl Sat, 3 Apr 2004, at 5:19 a.m.
1-cup cooked mashed potatoes (mashed without butter or milk)
1-large egg, beaten
1/8-tsp ground black pepper
1/4-cup all-purpose flour
5-strips crispy cooked bacon, crumbled
2-tbsp bacon drippings, for coating the skillet
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, egg, salt, pepper, flour, and bacon and
stir gently until the dough holds together. Coat the bottom of the skillet with
bacon drippings and preheat over a medium heat. Using a 1/4 cup measure, drop
the dough into the hot skillet and fry the scones for 3 to 4 minutes on each
side, or until golden brown. (You may have to work in batches). Remove from the
pan and drain on paper towels. Serve warm. Makes 6 to 8 scones.
