Accidental Post: Latkes

I really wasn't going to do any latkes posts. But, after seeing this one and this one I lost all self control and started blending potatoes. If you look at the links, you'll notice that their latkes look different from the ones below, they're grated whereas mine are blended. Usually I do grate them, but I didn't feel like going to to the effort of grating a bunch of potatoes.

Technically, here's the recipe (with my recipe in parentheses):

4 medium potatoes, unpeeled (I was following a different recipe at first that called for 6 potatoes)
1 egg (because I had 6 potatoes, I used two eggs)
1 onion
1 tsp salt (I only used one tsp and probably could have had more salt)
1/3 cup flour (used 2/3 cup)
1 tsp baking power (used 2 tsp)
cut potatoes and onion
place in processor with eggs.
process really, really well
add remaining ingredients
process just to blend into smooth mixture

fry in hot oil

The potatoes I used were quite large and I ended up with 22 latkes (anyone hungry?).
