1 c. kernel corn, frozen or cut from the cob
1 lg. green onion, diced
2 c. cheese, grated (any flavor)
1 c. all-purpose flour
salt & pepper to taste
Using your hands mix all ingredients well, like you would for hamburger patties.
Form handfuls of potato mixture into balls and shape into patties. Fry in butter, bacon grease, lard or olive oil until golden on one side, flip and continue cooking until other side is also golden. (For an authentic southern flavor, use bacon grease and fry in a cast iron skillet. Yes, cast iron does make a difference in the flavor).
Makes 8-10 potato cakes. Serve as a side dish or add a salad for a light meal. Variation: add 1 c. diced ham or 1/2 c. crumbled bacon.
