looking for new Potato Latke recipe

This is mine:
1 egg
3/4 med onion - coarsely cut
1-11/2 tsp salt (lean toward the 1 tsp)
3 TBS matzo meal
3 cups diced raw potatoes

In blender -egg, onion, potatoes & salt - grate on low speed - enough to cut up BUT NOT MUSH!
(as soon as the last potatoe is pulled down turn off blender). Stir in matzo meal to make thick pancake consistancy. Drop into hot oil and fry till brown.

I plan on grating the potatoes this year with my food processor and letting them drain in colander - maybe along with grated onion to drain and then with paper towels try to dry even more. I looked on epicurious and was surprised that many don't use a thickening component.

I would love your own tried and true recipe.
Happy Chanukah!
