Potato Latkes

serves 6 ( 2 latkes and 2 T. applesauce =  6 points + )

3-½ c. shredded peeled potato
1-¼ c. grated onion
6 T. flour
¼ tsp. dried thyme
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 large egg
¼ c. olive oil, divided
¾ c. unsweetened applesauce

Combine potato and onion in a colander. Drain 30 minutes, pressing with the back of a spoon until barely moist. Combine potato mixture, flour and next four ingredients in a large bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 T. oil to pan and swirl to coat. Spoon ¼ c. potato mixture into pan and flatten slightly. Repeat 5 times to form 6 latkes. Cook 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from pan and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and potato mixture to yield 12 latkes total.
Serve applesauce with latkes.
