Servings: 6 servings
- 12 ounces canned corned beef
- 2 cups shredded potatoes rinsed and squeezed dry
- 1/4 cup grated onion
- 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons butter divided
- 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
Open the pesky and weirdly shaped can of corned beef. Pull the meat out, pop it into a medium-sized bowl and break it up with a fork.
Shred the potatoes on a box grater and rinse them with cold water to remove the starch. Give them a good squeeze to remove the excess liquid.
Add the grated onion, flour, egg, pepper, and baking powder. Mix well with a fork.
Get a large skillet good and hot. I love making these fritters on my Blackstone griddle, but you can use any good heavy-bottomed skillet.
Working in batches, melt about 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 1/2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet. When foamy and hot, drop large-ish spoonfuls (up to about 1/4 cup/60 mL) into the hot fat. Flatten them somewhat with a flipper, but don't press them down too much.
Cook for 3-4 minutes then flip and cook an additional 3-4 minutes or until they're golden brown and crispy. Set them aside on a plate and tent loosely with foil to keep them warm.
Repeat with more oil and butter and work in batches until they're all fried and crispy. Enjoy!
