stick (1/4 cup) butter
box (4.9 oz) Betty Crocker™ Loaded Mashed Simple Recipe Potatoes
Microwave the butter and water in a large bowl until the water is very hot and the butter is melted. Whisk in the potato package. Mix until combined and allow to fully cool in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, chop the chives and cook and crumble the bacon.
Preheat a frying pan or cast iron skillet. Liberally add oil to the pan. Form thick patties with your potato mixture and cook to brown, about 5 minutes a side on high heat.
Be gentle with the pancakes at this point because they will be soft. Move to a serving dish and top with the bacon, chives, and sour cream.
