An old family recipe from my SIL. I like to serve this with applesauce. Makes ALOT!!!!

These are delish! The lemon juice tip worked a dream. Unfortunately, there was user error and I grabbed too big of a grating disc for the food processor and my potato and apples were too coarsely grated - (didn't have any more eggs to add to hold them together.) but I made some great hash browns with them. The apple adds a subtle sweetness. I'll be making these again!
