Bacon Potato Pancakes



 2 cups frozen hashbrown potatoes, thawed

 1 tablespoon grated onion

 2 eggs, beaten

 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

 1/2 cup peanut oil for frying

 ¼ cup bacon bits


  1. In a medium bowl stir the potatoes, onion, eggs, flour, bacon bits and salt together.
  2. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until hot. Place large spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, pressing down on them to form 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick patties. Brown on one side, turn and brown on the other. Let drain on paper towels. Serve hot!
