This was my grandpa's favorite recipe to make on St. Patrick's Day morning - I can smell the aroma of cooking pancakes just talking about them! We often used the leftovers to make meat or cheese roll-ups. As you can imagine, we always urged Grandpa to make plenty of these!

"My husband and I really enjoyed these pancakes! The apples added an unexpected, but delicious touch of sweetness. I will be making these again!"

"Made the recipe as written and didn't like how the first four came out. So I add 3 more tablespoons of flour. Next time I make them I will start with just 1 egg and go from there. I will also measure the potatoes and the apples, since the sizes vary and I want to consistent product from one time to the next. I will also use my griddle to cut down on the amount of oil."
