"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

6 Tbs. all-purpose flour

Directions:
Combine the potatoes and egg well. Thoroughly stir in the flour, followed by the onion, chives, salt and pepper.

Heat 1/8 inch vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Form potato mixture into patties. Add the patties to the skillet and fry until bottoms are golden brown. Carefully turn patties over and cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Keep patties hot on a rack set on a baking sheet in a preheated 250 degree oven.

Stir together sour cream and tapenade, and serve with hot pancakes if desired.

Note: My mother used to make these using cold leftover mashed potatoes, but you can use refrigerated mashed potatoes if you don't have homemade potatoes.
