Potato Apple Pancakes Recipe

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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:5-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled
  • 2 medium apples, peeled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Finely shred potatoes and apples; pat dry. Place in a bowl; add the eggs, onion, flour and salt and mix well.
  • 2. In a skillet, heat 1/4 to 1/2 in. oil over medium-high heat. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into hot oil. Flatten to form 3-in. pancakes. Fry until golden brown; turn and cook the other side. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with sour cream if desired. Yield: 10-12 pancakes.

"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."
