1 Peel and grate the potatoes into a bowl.
2 Heat the frying pan to 2/3 of the maximum power of your stove, and test the heat using the ‘water drop’ technique.
3 Brown the bacon pieces, then add the potatoes, onion, garlic, egg, flour and Espelette pepper.
4 Stir well and season with salt.
5 Clean the frying pan and heat it again to 2/3 of your stove’s maximum heat.
6 Pour a tablespoon of olive oil and add 1/6 of the potato mixture. Shape it into a patty and brown for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip it.
7 Once both sides have been browned, repeat with the remainder of the potato mixture to make 6 cakes.
8 Bake for 15–20 minutes.
Tip: You can use the cakes as potato-based hamburger buns.
