1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup all purpose flour

2 cups fine dried bread crumbs

For the salsa

    1/2 cup roasted or steamed corn kernels

    4 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced

    1/2 cup minced onions

    Pinch of Garlic powder

    1 teaspoon minced jalapeno peppers

    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

Directions

Preheat a deep fat fryer. In a saucepan, combine the onions, celery, potatoes, 2 teaspoons garlic, and water. Season with salt and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.

In a large sauti pan, brown the sausage, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

Remove the potatoes from the heat and drain. Turn the potatoes into a mixing bowl. Add the sausage, parsley, remaining tablespoon of garlic, 1 egg, and cream.

Using a hand held masher, mash mixer until thoroughly blended. Season with salt and pepper. Cool the mixture completely.

Form the mixture into a log, 1-inch thick. Cut the log into 2-inch pieces.

In a small mixing bowl, add the flour and season with Creole seasoning.

In another small mixing bowl, whisk the remaining 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons milk together. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.

In a third mixing bowl, add the bread crumbs and season with Creole seasoning.

Dredge the potato cakes in seasoned flour, coating completely. Dip each cake in the egg wash, allowing the excess to drip off. Dredge the cakes in the seasoned bread crumbs, coating completely.

Fry the cakes until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes, turning often for even browning. Remove the cakes from the oil and drain on paper towels. Season the cakes with Creole seasoning.

Place 2 cakes in the center of each plate and spoon some Salsa over the cakes.

For the salsa
Combine the corn, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder and salt. Mix well and set aside for atleast 30 minutes. Season the salsa with salt and pepper.
