  1. Insert medium shredding disc in Cuisinart® Food Processor.  Use medium pressure to shred the potatoes and onion.  Squeeze all excess liquid out of potatoes and onions by wrapping up in a clean towel and gently wringing. Place in a bowl; add matzo meal, parsley, salt and pepper, toss to mix thoroughly. Stir in egg.
  2. Coat the bottom of a 12" nonstick skillet with olive oil and heat over medium high.  When hot, drop pancake mixture by scant ¼ cup spoonfuls to form 6 cakes – evenly spaced in pan. Press down on top to flatten to about ¼" thickness. Cook about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until crispy and light brown. Repeat, adding oil as needed. Keep warm on a rack in a 200°F oven.
  3. Serve with warm applesauce.
