"We love these on Sundays but have been known to have them for dinner - alone or along with some sausage or bacon!" — HeidiS

russet potatoes, peeled and shredded
Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored, and shredded
green onions, diced
salt to taste
vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
Don't think 'pancakes' - they are really Potato Latkes. You don't really taste the apple, none the less they are very good. I used one huge russet baking potato - grated it into a salad spinner full of cold water - rinsed the potatoes a couple of times to remove the excess starch - grated the apple into the same bowl, drained and spun it dry. Then I rinsed the bowl of the salad spinner and used that to mix the eggs, potatoes, onions etc... in. (one less bowl to wash) I used a heavy non stick skillet with just a bit of oil on the bottom. Once you get the potatoes into the skillet don't move or flip them until the edges are golden brown. Perfect, crispy - a delicious Sunday morning treat.
I wasn't a big fan of this. It was OK, just not something I would go to the trouble of making again. Very heavy tasting (even more so than hashbrowns or pancakes) and I couldn't figure out the point of the apple since there really wasn't enough of it to make a difference in taste.
We loved these! A nice little twist, with the grated apples! Will definitely make these again! Thank you, HeidiS!
I thought this was very good. I used 7 small russet potatoes (the size that comes in the 10lbs bags)and one Granny Smith apple. Very easy to make, served with homemade apple sauce, a great combination.
