An intelligent recipe--the only one I've ever seen that doesn't have you peel the potatoes and that uses matzoh meal instead of flour.
However--it is totally unnecessary to separate the eggs or to drain the potatoes. Just put everything except the matzoh meal into the food processor bowl (or better yet, a blender) and process like crazy. Then mix in the matzoh meal, a little at a time, until the batter just kind of holds together. Then fry.
