Comfort Diner Potato Pancakes with Homemade Applesauce

Potato Pancakes
3 Idaho potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Homemade Applesauce
3 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into medium chunks
8 ounces orange juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 small cinnamon stick (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon)
2 whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Place potatoes in a medium sauce pan with enough cold water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes until fork tender. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pan and cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes more, shaking the pan. Transfer the potatoes to a mixing bowl.

Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until translucent about 4-6 minutes. Add the butter, egg salt and pepper to the potatoes and stir to combine. When cool, shape mixture into 8 small pancakes.

Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the potato pancakes and cook 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the cakes and reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Drain the cakes on the paper towels and serve with applesauce, recipe follows.

Homemade Applesauce: Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook until the apples are fork tender. Remove from the heat and mash all the ingredients together using a potato masher.
