Include the potatoes and onion to the egg mixture and toss until thoroughly coated.

3-    In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over moderate heat. Using a scant 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, drop the potato mixture into the skillet, flattening each cake with a spatula to form 4-inch rounds.
