Shore (Acadian dish)

1 tbspSalt 15 ml
5 poundsPotatoes(peeled)2500g
2 packagesGreen bacon(back bacon)2 packages
6 cupsMashed potatoes1500 ml
2 tspbaking power10 ml
1Cheese Cloth1

Wash, peel and cook enough potatoes for your 6 cups of mashed that are needed (~ 5lbs)

Cut up all of the green bacon into 1 inch pieces.
Cook 1/2 of the bacon until crispy and set aside.
Reserve the fat and use this to grease your casserole dish.

For Shredded Potatoes:
Wash and peel another 5 pounds of potatoes
Have a large bowl with water and 1 tbsp of salt set aside to hold your shredded potatoes (This will help the potatoes from turning brown).
Using a food processor shred the potatoes - put into large bowl immediately.
When complete, Use a cheese cloth to drain all the water from the potatoes. (You should only drain a few cups at a time)

Mix your shredded potato, eggs, baking power and mashed potato together and form patties about 2 1/2 inch round and place on the casserole dish.
Place a piece of the cooked bacon on top of each pattie and top with another pattie and place a piece of the uncooked bacon on that. You should have enough mixture to do two 9x13 pans.
Place in a preheated oven at 400F for 45 minutes to one hour or until golden brown.

Any leftovers are great pan fried the next day.
This dish freezes well too.
