    Serves: 6 

    • 2 cups peeled and grated potatoes
    • 1/4 onion, grated
    • 1/3 cup diced spring onion
    • 2 eggs, whisked
    • 2 tablespoons plain flour, or as needed
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, or to taste
    • 1 cup (250ml) canola oil, or as needed

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Place the potatoes in a cloth and wring them to remove as much moisture as possible.
    2. Mix the potatoes, onion, spring onion, eggs, flour and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
    3. Heat the oil in a large heavy frypan over medium heat until it shimmers (oil should be about 8mm deep).
    4. Drop about 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture per patty into the hot oil and flatten the potatoes to make the patties 1/2 to 1cm thick.
    5. 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 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.  -  31 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  04 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  28 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
