  1. Place the potatoes in a cloth, and wring them to remove as much moisture as possible. Mix the potatoes, onion, green onion, eggs, flour, and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat until it shimmers (oil should be about 1/3 inch deep). Drop about 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture per patty into the hot oil, and flatten the potatoes to make the patties 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. Brown the patties in the hot oil until golden and crisp on the bottom, about 5 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side. Drain the latkes on paper towels, and serve hot.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I purchase frozen shredded potatoes from the frozen food section and thaw them.

These were fantastic! I halved the recipe just to try them and wish I hadn't, as they really had great flavor. I used refrigerated hash browns instead of fresh. I did use more cajun seasoning th...

Loved these! I defrosted frozen shredded hash browns in the microwave for a quick fix. I added 3 cloves of minced garlic and I used olive oil, as that is the only oil I keep in the house.

Easy. Classic latke with cajun seasoning. Thanks.

I add a bit more seasonings, but these are awesome with porkchops and cabbage on top. YUM!

I only had blue potatoes and figured I would give this a shot. My food processor has a shred disk. Very good, but I may use an electric griddle next time instead of using all the oil.

These were really tasty. I added fresh parsley, garlic & a handful of shredded Asiago cheese too. However, I should not have let them sit for an hour before frying or I should have strained the ...
