Creole Potato Pancakes

  • 1 pound shredded potatoes
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallot
  • 2 eggs
  • 10 ounces shredded Andouille sausage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt, pepper, and Tabasco to taste
Mix all ingredients well. Heat some grapeseed/vegetable oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Spoon the mixture into the hot skillet, forming little cakes, and cook until well-browned on both sides.
Garnish with sour cream and chives if desired. Actually, garnish with whatever you want. These puppies taste good with anything.
