8 oz. cream cheese, softened

Saute the onion in tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet until tender. Combine with 1 can of peas, cream cheese, chives, egg, hot sauce, onion flakes and salt in a food processor and process until smooth. Combine with the hush puppy mix and remaining can of peas in bowl and mix well.
Use 2 tablespoons of mixture to make small patties and place on a baking sheet covered with wax paper. Chill, covered, for 1 hour.
