  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • vegetable oil sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce


  • Peel potatoes and then grate them. Place grated potatoes into a bowl filled with water. Grate onion and also place into a bowl with the potatoes. Soak the potatoes for about 5 minutes or so. Mix together flour and egg in a large bowl until well blended. Season flour mixture with black pepper and salt. Drain water from potatoes and squeeze potatoes dry with your hands.
  •  Stir together flour mixture and potatoes until you have a uniform consistency. Heat a skillet to 350 degrees add a couple of teaspoons of oil. Make pancakes by taking about 1/4 cup of potato pancake mix and patting it out into the pan, cook until browned on one side, flip over, and then brown on the other side. This should take 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve with sour cream and applesauce.
