Put the potatoes into a large pan of lightly salted cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until very tender to the point of a knife. Drain and leave to steam for 5 minutes, then tip back into the pan with the butter, and mash.
Scrape the mash into a bowl with the soured cream, chives, flour, black pepper and plenty of salt, and mix until completely combined into a smooth dough.
Flour a worksurface, tip out the dough, and sprinkle some flour over the top. Use a rolling pin to roll out to a circle the same size as your largest non-stick frying pan. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough, like a pizza, into eight equal triangles.
Heat the frying pan over a medium heat, melt in a little butter and swirl the pan so it covers the base evenly. Cook the potato scones for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Serve with crispy bacon and roasted tomatoes, if you like.
