I just love potato pancakes and this recipe is a twist on the norm, serve with applesauce or sour cream.

We enjoyed these for supper to use up some leftover mashed green onion potatoes. The mashed potatoes worked out just great but I did add a second egg as they looked dry and there was no way I could "pour" them into the fry pan. The apple added a lovely hint of sweatness to them. Rather than oil I used veggie spray to cook them. I served them with garlic butter, recipe #179222, they went very well together. Thanks for posting I will make them again.

If you use organic potatoes and apples, there's no need to peel them. I also cooked mine on a griddle to use less fat and served them with applesauce and chicken sausage links. A very tasty breakfast dish.

Good solid potato pancake recipe. I was concerned that there was not enough liquid, and I think maybe two eggs would make better proportions. I cooked these on a griddle instead of in oil to save some fat. Tasty part of dinner. Thanks!
