What You Need

1
lb.  baking potatoes (about 3), peeled
1
small  onion
2
 eggs, beaten
1/4
cup  flour
1/4
tsp.  ground black pepper
1/4
cup  oil, divided
3/4
cup  BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
3/4
cup  applesauce
1
Tbsp.   chopped fresh chives

Make It

GRATE potatoes, then onion using large holes of box grater; place in center of large clean kitchen towel. Bring up ends of towel and twist together to form pouch. Hold pouch over sink, then squeeze to remove as much moisture from vegetables as possible. Empty vegetable mixture into large bowl. Add eggs, flour and pepper; mix well.

HEAT 2 Tbsp. oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. For each latke, carefully drop 1/4 cup potato mixture into skillet, cooking 6 latkes at a time. Press with back of spatula to flatten. Cook 3 to 4 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove latkes from skillet; drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining oil and potato mixture.

SERVE warm topped with remaining ingredients.
