  • 6 strips thick-cut bacon, cut in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 cups Hungry Jack® Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Directions

    1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Reserve 2 tablespoons fat in pan.
    2. Add onions to pan and cook over medium heat until deep golden brown, about 20 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, heat a large pot of water to boiling while preparing gnocchi.
    4. Combine potato flakes, cheese, flour, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk together egg, butter and 1 cup water in another bowl. Pour over dry ingredients and mix lightly with a fork until a dough forms.
    5. Knead dough gently, turning a few times on a lightly floured surface. Divide into four equal pieces. Roll into ropes about 20 inches long and cut into 1-inch pieces. If desired, roll the tines of a fork along gnocchi to add ridges.
    6. Add half the gnocchi to the boiling water and simmer 3 minutes. Gnocchi should rise to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to the pan with onions. Repeat with remaining gnocchi.
    7. Stir gnocchi and onions gently and top with crisped bacon.
    8. Serve immediately with dollops of sour cream.
