Really Good Potato Pancakes


  • 2 pounds Washington russet potatoes
  • 1 tart apple (Pink Lady or Granny Smith)
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup oil (you’ll use the oil just a few tablespoons at a time)

What you'll need to make this recipe:

* Vegetable peeler
* Big plate
* Paper towels
* Shredder
* Large bowl
* Big spoon
* Small bowl
* Fork or a whisk
* Big non-stick skillet
* ¼ cup measure
* Pancake turner
* Tablespoon measuring spoon
* Heatproof platter
* Potholders


  1. This is a recipe for a team: you and an adult – because there’s some shredding and frying involved. To skip the shredding, just buy some frozen or refrigerated hash brown potatoes – you’ll need about 4 cups. (You will still need to core and shred the apple.) The apple in with the potato makes these crispy pancakes just a little sweet. Top pancakes with applesauce and/or sour cream. The pancakes will take about 30 minutes.
