    From November 2005 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. You can prepare your own tapenade at home. Smaller formed patties are ideal as appetizers.

    1. 1
      In a large bowl combine the mashed potatoes, smoked cheese, flour, fresh cilantro, and pepper. Form potato mixture into 8 patties or 16 mini-patties, each about 3/4" thick.
    2. 2
      In a shallow dish beat together the egg and water. In a separate shallow dish place bread crumbs. Dip potato patties carefully in egg mixture, then in bread crumbs, turning to coat both sides evenly.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    4. 4
      In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil over medium heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Add 4 patties to skillet; do not crowd and cook approximately 4 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.
    5. 5
      Gently turn patties and cook 4 to 5 minutes more, or until golden brown. Remove patties to baking sheet. Keep warm in oven. Cook remaining patties, using remaining 1 teaspoon oil.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, prepare the potato topping by combining in a small bowl the sour cream and tapenade. Serve patties hot with sour cream mixture.

      I almost hesitate to review this, because I made a lot of changes. Here I go, though! I used feta, green onion, and cracker crumbs (instead of the breadcrumbs). I diced some kalamatas and added extra olive oil for the tapenade, and (this is the biggest sub) I had to use mayo instead of sour cream. I didn't want to run to the store! Despite all of my substitions of convenience, this was a very delicious recipe, and I'll be making it in the future in its many permutations. Just a little note...I think the horseradish/cumin is supposed to be added to the sour cream. Thanks for sharing an outstanding recipe, Cookgirl!
