Potato pancakes were always my favorite part of big holiday breakfasts. We usually used frozen, store-bought pancakes but I still thought they tasted amazing. This homemade version is much more fresh and flavorful than the freezer burnt kind I loved as a kid. These can be eaten for any meal of the day but they taste best with a generous helping of applesauce (especially cinnamon applesauce) and sour cream.
Grate 4 medium-sized peeled potatoes and 1 large onion on your smallest-sized grater. (Do not blend in blender.) Add 4 egg yolks and a pinch of salt. Whip whites of the 4 eggs and add them. In a skillet with a lid, fry till brown on each side, turning only once.
