  1. Place shredded potatoes and apple in a clean kitchen towel. Gather towel on top and wring out excess liquid.
  2. Combine potatoes, apple, eggs, flour, and green onion in a bowl.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large heavy sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Form mixture into palm-sized patties; fry in hot oil, working in batches, until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes on each side. More oil may be needed with each batch.
  5. Remove pancakes from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with salt.
  6. Serve pancakes topped with sour cream.

Simple, delicious...could easily make a meal out of these alone. Yum!

I was looking for something to make using the 3 leftover baked potatoes I had. This recipe fit the bill nicely. I like the addition of grated apple. It adds a subtle but pleasant flavor. Because...
