Lilian's latkes

With so many Jews posting on this blog, I feel like a bit of an imposter putting up the latke recipe, but it must be done. After all, I did wake up at 4 a.m. in the dead of winter every year of high school to make this very recipe for the final holiday assembly.
If I messed this up, please edit.
2 eggs
1 small onion
3 large baking potatoes, peeled
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
3 tbsp Cornflakes, crushed (for crunch factor!)
vegetable oil
This is easiest in a food processor with a grating blade. Grate potato in food processor. Drain in cheesecloth to get rid of as much water as possible. Grate onion in food processor. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add potato, onion, salt, pepper, and cornflakes. Heat ½-inch of oil in a large skillet. Add batter by the spoonful and flatten slightly. Cook until crisp, 2-3 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side. Drain latkes on a rack or with paper towel. Add more oil between batches as needed. “have fun.”
