  1. 1-2 cups canola oil or as needed
  2. 1 1/2 teaspoons cajun seasonings, or to taste
  3. 2 eggs, beaten
  4. 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour, or as needed
  5. 1/3 cup diced green onion
  6. 2 cups peeled,shredded potatoes
  7. 1/4 onion, grated


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!
