  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.

Footnotes

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.

It took a while, because I was doing this for a school project and I didn't buy pre packaged ones so I had to peel and shred 8 potatoes, Also, there was a lot of egg.

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 ki...

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.

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 ...

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