A friend and I were talking about our mom's cooking. Told him I made soup beans and froze the left overs so I could have them again in a week or two. He said they never had left over soup beans when he was young as his mom would fry them up like potato cakes the next day. He said he liked the soup bean cakes / fritters more than the bean soup the first day. My mom made potato cakes and they were one of my favorites. Anyone's family make potato cake style soup beans? He said it was simple, she would throw in some oil or lard get it hot and cook the soup beans until brown on each side. Sounds interesting to me, I assume most of the moisture would need to be cooked out for a thicker soup bean to get started? How do you make them?
