These are easy, fast, and pretty healthy. I use a processor to make them.
1 lb of small potatoes
1 lg red onion
1 lg apple
Processor: Use a slicing disk (raised disk with the little random holes)
First crack the eggs into the bottom of the processor, then drop the potatoes in, slowly. [Tip: If you let them bounce around and peel themselves down rather than force them in the potato comes out finer, and the starch binds much better]. Press the quartered onion, then the quartered apple through the blade, and empty to a bowl. Stir well until everything is combined. Add enough bread crumbs to stiffen the mixture up. [Tip: If you let sit before mixing the gluten bonds will also provide extra firmness, as with any floured recipe].
Spray a fry pan with spritz and cook over med/high heat depending on the thickness.
Top with non fat sour cream and jams. I prefer to top with bruchetta.
