Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, shredded potatoes

  • ¼ onion, shredded

  • cup chopped green onion

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, or as needed

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Cajun seasoning, or to taste

  • 1 cup canola oil, or as needed

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.

Cook's Note:

I purchase frozen shredded potatoes from the frozen food section and thaw them.
