Potato-Apple Latkes

A great Hanukkah dish, there is no need to serve applesauce with these latkes. Shredded apple sweetens the pancakes - serve with a dollop of sour cream!

Made them for breakfast. My kids ate them as fast as I could get them off the grill. I'll have to make more than recipe called for to keep up. I substituted leeks for the onions, since I didn't have any onions in the house, and added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

I served the latkes with pork chops that were breaded and tender and yummy and put a dollop of sour cream & applesauce on top of the latkes. I could not get the apples I wanted Jonathan-tart but next time they will be in the stores and I shall make the latkes again.....loved them! Hubby & I agreed tho, no onion next time.
