Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups shredded, unpeeled russet potatoes (about 1 lb)
  • 1/2 cup grated onion
  • 1/3 cup peeled, shredded carrot
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

Preparation

Directions

  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.
  3. Drain the potatoes and squeeze out moisture; stir into egg mixture. 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.
  4. Repeat with remaining oil and potatoes.
  5. Serve immediately with chunky applesauce and low-fat sour cream.
