Things To Grab

  1. Shred russet and sweet potatoes using the large holes on a box grater. Spread potatoes on a large sheet of paper towels or a clean kitchen towel. Add leek and shallot. Squeeze to remove liquid; set potato mixture aside.

  2. Whisk together eggs, Parmesan cheese, corn starch, garlic, salt, nutmeg, and black pepper in a large bowl. Add potato mixture; stir until well combined.

  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet to 325 degrees. Form mixture into 6 (3-inches) patties, using about 2/3 cup for each patty. Carefully, place 3 patties into the hot oil. Fry patties 6 to 8 minutes or until golden and crisp, turning halfway through. Transfer patties to paper towels to drain. Fry remaining 3 patties.
