    Applebee's Potato Twisters

    Applebee's Potato Twisters

    The restaurant serves their Potato Twisters with homemade pico de gallo and queso blanco sauce.[1] To get the spiraled effect of the Twisters as prepared by Applebees, you can use an Apple- Peeler-Corer-Slicer set on the thinnest setting. If you don't have an Apple Peeler-Corer-Slicer, use a mandolin, or a food processor with the thinnest blade. Serves: 6 Start to finish: 30 minutes
