Hexesharon... If I had to guess, I'd say the green was chopped parsley. Personally, I would add chopped chives, and serve with applesauce. That's how us Polacks eat them!

A good recipe, but here are a couple of hints. I squeeze the shredded potato to get as much starchy water off as possible. Do not use a food processor - it won't get enough of the starch out. When you remove the liquid, note the amount and replace that amount with milk.Separate the eggs and beat the white separately until fluffy. It will make lighter pancakes.I fry in hot Crisco, not in oil. Should be pretty hot so they fry quickly and don't absorb a lot of fat.
