2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 tbsp flour
1 tbsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
4 baking potatoes (~2 1/2 lb)
1 onion, grated coarsely
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and shredded
canola oil for frying
1. In a small bowl, mix the egg with the flour, salt and white pepper. Set
2. Peel the potatoes and shred coarsely. Mix with the shredded onions and
apples and squeeze dry. Add to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Let
sit for 10 minutes.

sizes until golden brown. This will take about 2-3 minutes per side.

To make the vanilla-flavored applesauce, add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tsp lemon juice to 3/4 cup bottled applesauce.
