Directions

Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the bacon from the skillet, keeping the drippings in the skillet. Remove the skillet from the heat. Chop the bacon and reserve.

Place the potatoes and garlic in a large pot with enough water to cover by 2 inches and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Return the potatoes and garlic to the pot. Mash with the broth, yogurt, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup panko, the cheese, scallions and reserved bacon. Shape into eight 3-inch patties. Place the remaining 3/4 cup panko in a shallow dish and dredge the patties in the crumbs.

Heat the bacon drippings over medium-high heat. Add half the potato cakes and cook until browned and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Carefully transfer to a serving platter. Repeat with the potato cakes. Serve hot.

    To use ingredients on hand I made the following changes: fat free sour cream instead of yogurt, regular breadcrumbs and plain russet potatoes - but the potato cakes were still excellent. I had problems getting them to hold together while frying, but they were still excellent and we'll definitely do this again.
