  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 12 to 16

Ingredients

2 1/2cups shredded, unpeeled russet potatoes (about 1 pound)
1/2cup grated onion
1/3cup peeled shredded carrot
1/3cup flour
2tablespoons snipped fresh chives
1teaspoon kosher salt
1/4teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 egg, plus 1 egg white
2tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

Instructions

  1. Scrub potatoes and coarsely grate. Immediately place in a bowl of ice water to keep potatoes from discoloring; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place the onion, carrot, flour, chives, salt, pepper and eggs in a medium bowl and stir well. Drain the potatoes and squeeze out moisture; stir into egg mixture.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Spoon about 1/4 cup of potato mixture for each pancake into skillet, cooking 4 at a time. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, flattening with the back of a spatula and cooking until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining oil and potatoes. Serve immediately with chunky applesauce and low-fat sour cream.
