1 Potato, 2 Potato (or is it potatoe..... )
A potato recipe (and I use the word "recipe" loosely):
Boil up several pounds of new(ish)red potatoes. Leave the skins on. When they are fork tender, drain the water and smash them with either a fork or a potato masher. If they are done, they should just pop right open. Dump in some sour cream. Snip some fresh chives into it all and mash/smash some more.
Leftovers? Store in fridge. The next day, or whenever you get to them before they turn black, scoop out a spoonful, form into a patty. Dredge in flour to get rid of excess moisture. Fry in a small amount of HOT oil. Season with salt, pepper and some onion powder. Turn when a dark, golden brown. You can serve with applesauce, sour cream or just enjoy them as is.
I love 2-fers.
For the record, I'm joking about the "potatoe". Anyone out there old enough to remember Dan Quayle? He though Murphy Brown was a threat to society. Nevermind the fact that she was a fictional character...
