    It’s “National Potato Day,” today, so especially for those two potato-heads, Art Vandalay (presumably your avatar is meant to be Art Vandelay from “Seinfeld” but you’re a potato-head so we can’t expect you to know how to spell.) and curmudgeon68, whose idea of original comment seems to be mostly limited to “Agreed,” (About the level of your brains; I consider you lazy too.) here is a very good dish that might be made from their relatives.

    It’s got bacon in it!

    POTATO CAKES (Credited to: Wilhelmina Gerhardt Stinson)

    12 strips bacon
    3/4 cups onions, chopped fine
    3 eggs, beaten
    4 cups mashed potatoes
    1/2 cup milk (whole)
    Salt and pepper

    Fry the bacon and drain on brown paper.
    Pour off fat, measure 3 tablespoons, return to pan.
    Brown the onions lightly in bacon fat.
    Beat the eggs, mix with potatoes, add just enough of the milk to handle when shaping into cakes, season, add onion.
    Shape into oval cakes about 3/4 – inch thick.
    Brown lightly in the bacon fat in which onions were sautéed, turning to brown other side.
    Cover and steam over low heat for 5 minutes.
    Serve with the bacon. 4 servings

    There, I’ve had my childish rant for the day.

    Well, what would life be like without a few Internet trolls?
    Oh, wait, that’d be great!

    I don’t think that patch is very sincere.

    Sounds good. I’ll try it. Suddenly I’m hungry; must be the thought of BACON!

    I must admit that I’m totally confused how a comic strip can somehow morph into a recipe, as it always seems when you post. If I want a recipe I can surf the web or buy the book. Posting should be funny or at least an attempt at humour. Recipes just don’t qualify.

    Does Wiz have to vaporize the driver after Halloween?

    He has at least 156 more secret locations? The mind boggles.

    The Great Pumpkin will be pleased.

    The recipe sounds delicious Alexikakos! Hey, you keep on “keepin’ on”! I like the recipes.

    Now we know where The Great Pumpkin came from. Wiz created him to guard his pumpkin patch.

    “(Omnius seems to have disappeared, so I suppose somebody has to take his place.)”

    I’ve been a ‘fan’ of Omnius a long time, in that I follow and torture him every chance I get just for the fun of it, but I DO remember he had said he’d be in either Denmark or Sweden with relatives this time of the year, so look for his return sometime soon. Alexikakos likes to spread recipes about EVERYTHING hereabouts, so it’s just a tolerated odor as we walk through
    the fairgrounds of gocomics.com. I have my UnFavorite commenters that plague the place, but zip by them..
    Life’s short. Bile kills.
