    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!

    easy to prepare, and the kids and myself enjoyed this morning. Made recipe as posted except I left out the green onions. Living in "apple country up here we did slightly taste a bit of an apple taste. Nice and easy . Made for 1-2-3 hits

    Easy to prepare and delicious to eat. I did do the grating earlier, the lemon juice in water tip works a treat. The apple is not at all an obvious taste, I did wonder if it would be! And the pancakes cooked through nicely, with a nice crispy exterior. Thank you, really enjoyed these! :D

    This recipe was cut in half for just 2 of us & was served with a homemade applesauce & we really like them! Will definitely have to keep these in mind when my veggie son & his wife are over, 'cause then I often make several different veggie patties for part of our dinner! And, I wouldn't mind trying this with half russet & half sweet potato (have been on a sweet potato kick recently, so . . .)! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday!]
