This is one of my favourite options on the breakfast buffet, especially with fresh poached or scrambled eggs and sausage.

Ingredients

  • 2 russet potatoes (1-1/2 lb/750 g)
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

Peel potatoes and sweet potato. By hand or in food processor with shredder blade, grate potatoes and sweet potato; squeeze out liquid. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper; add potatoes and toss to mix.

In large skillet, heat one-quarter each of the butter and oil over medium-low heat. Drop potato mixture by 1/4 cupfuls (50 mL) into skillet; press to flatten slightly. Fry, in batches, turning once and adding remaining butter and oil as necessary, for about 15 minutes or until tender and edges are golden. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; reheat on baking sheet in 450?F/230?C oven for about 5 minutes.)
