Potato-Apple Pancakes

Serving Size: 12
Total Time:

Tart Granny Smith apple and fresh dill are added to these crisp potato pancakes. Serve plain or topped with smoked salmon.


  • 2 baking potatoes, peeled and grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 0.25 cup chopped dill
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 6 Tbsp canola oil
  • Sour cream, for serving


  1. Squeeze all the excess water from the potatoes and apples and place them in a bowl. Add the dill and flour, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat thoroughly.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Spoon 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the skillet for each of 4 pancakes; press gently to flatten. Cook over moderately high heat, turning once and adding 1 tablespoon of oil, until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes per side. Drain briefly on a paper towel–lined plate. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture and oil. Serve with sour cream.
