Fried Cajun Potato Cakes

One of the benefits of feeding a large group of people is leftovers! Leftover potatoes can be used for many different recipes. One of our favorite uses is Potato Cakes. I used the leftover potatoes from our Shrimp Boil to make this recipe. However, you can use leftover mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes. 


Leftover mashed potatoes

2 tsp Cajun Seasoning

1 egg beaten 

2 Tbsp Flour

1/2 cup shredded cheese

2 Tbsp Oil

Flour for dusting


Mix cold mashed potatoes with all ingredients except the oil. Roll into balls, roll in flour on a cutting board and pat into Cakes. Heat oil in a skillet until hot. Add Cakes and cook on each side for about 5 minutes or until golden brown and heated through. Serve with shredded cheese and your choice of toppings. 

Side note: I use Yukon Gold potatoes for a more creamier flavor and the yellow color. But any type of Potato will work.
