Here are some fat-free, non-fried latkes.  They were created by Shari Lewis
(mother of Lambchop).

Shari Lewis's No-Fry Latkes
2 cups russet potatoes, peeled and shredded (about 3 medium potatoes)
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup toasted wheat germ
2 egg whites* (see note below)
4 to 6 turns of the pepper mill
1/2 teaspoon salt
Oil spray
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all 
ingredients into a batter. Coat two baking sheets with oil spray. Drop 1/4-cup
cupfuls of batter onto the prepared sheets; press the pancakes down with the
back of your dampened hand. 

Bake 15 minutes; then turn and bake 10 minutes longer, or until latkes 
are browned all over (but not blackened at edges). Serve with applesauce 
or fat-free sour cream. Makes approximately 14 latkes.
