Directions

  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.

These were really good and easy. I added some jalepenos and baked them with no oil, just spray and they turned out perfectly. Served as appetizers.

DOH! Why didn't I think of this before? I made these in appetizer size and they were gone in a flash. For speed, I used thawed frozen hashed browns, and they worked just fine. Just enough kick to be interesting. I would suggest using a quality cajun seasoning. (If you're looking to watch your sodium intake, there are many fine salt-free cajun seasonings available.) I'm certain that I'll try these latkes in other ethnic incarnations as well: mexican, etc. Thank you, CC!

I was tired of hearing my Jewish friend brag nonstop over her husband's latkes, so I decided to make a more flavorful version. ;) These were very good. I used the exact amount of Cajun seasoning, and thought it was perfect...flavorful, but not overwhelming. I would make these again.

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 than called for, and added a bit of garlic powder. SO YUMMY! I will definately be making these again! Thanks for sharing. :)

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.

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