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.

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet until it shimmers (1/3 inch deep for oil). Drop about 2 tablespoons of flattened patties into the hot oil.

Brown patties on both sides and drain on paper towels. Best when served hot!
