Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to its lowest setting.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, green onions, carrot, eggs, red pepper, cilantro and salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Stir in half of the bread crumbs, then add the remainder slowly, stopping when the mixture is just thick enough to hold its shape, but not so loose that it dribbles off a spoon.
  4. Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch into a large, heavy skillet and heat over medium heat until a tiny drop of the batter sizzles upon contact.
  5. Using a 1/3-cup metal measure as a scoop, ladle the batter into the hot oil in the skillet, pressing each mound of batter into a small, flat pancake.
  6. Fry the pancakes until nicely browned on both sides, for approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer the pancakes to a platter and keep warm in the oven while you fry the remaining pancakes.
  8. Serve immediately with sour cream and apple sauce, if desired.
