Beer "Latkes" or Pancakes

1 onion
2 potatoes
1 egg
3 tablespoons flour
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 cup ale
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 ounces cooked honey-roasted turkey or ham, minced (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Using a food processor (or by hand), finely grate the onion and potatoes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat a griddle until very hot. Drop the batter on by spoonfuls, turning over to brown both sides. Serve with sour cream or a honey-mustard dipping sauce.
