Salmon patties

2cups canned salmon (drained)
3T minced onion
3T minced celery
2 eggs
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup instant potatoes
salt and pepper to taste

mix well form into patties
pan fry in non stick pan

serve with lemon or tarter sauce

the original recipe said to dredge patties in cracker crumbs and fry in oil but i ommitted that part and fried in a non stick pan with spray pam and no crumbs.My canned salmon was canned with a few jalepeno peppers so if you like a little heat u could add a dash of hot sauce.

I made this today and DH and I thought it was the best Chicken stir-fry we've ever eaten. I did mix the sprouts right into the veggies and chicken, added about a cup of celery to the stir fry also. I didn't have fish sauce, coconut milk or red curry paste on hand but I found easy recipes for all three. I always keep a tube of anchovie paste in the frig, I used a teaspoon of that and 2 Tablespoons light soy sauce for the fish sauce. The red curry paste was really easy to make if you don't have that on hand and it's crucial for the recipe. Do not skip it! It made quite a bit of curry paste so I put the balance into my freezer for future use. It didn't call for a thicken of the sauce either so I mixed up 2 Tablespoon cornstarch with water and thickened it up. You all gotta try this, Yum-0. I didn't use the Cilantro. I'm not a huge fan of it.

Thai-Style Stir-Fried Chicken

Curry paste and coconut milk spice up a simple chicken and vegetable stir-fry. Once the ingredients are prepped, the cooking goes quickly, so have everything ready before you heat the pan.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup chicken mixture, 1/4 cup of sprouts, and 1 tablespoon cilantro)

1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons red curry paste
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrot
1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh bean sprouts
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Combine rice vinegar, brown sugar, lime juice, red curry paste, and crushed red pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes, turning once.
Remove chicken from the bag, reserving marinade. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add chicken; stir-fry 4 minutes. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add onion and carrot; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 3 minutes. Add reserved marinade, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add coconut milk and fish sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Stir in chicken and salt; cook 1 minute. Top with sprouts and cilantro.

I'm going to make this today, I scaled it in half....original recipes serves 12. This is for 6, it states to divide dough into two but I'm just going to make one big one since I cut the recipe in 1/2.Okay, I'm back to edit this. It said to leave about 2" high, I flattened mine out to about 1.5". I baked them for 35 minutes, put out on the counter to cool. The loaf was just too tempting sitting on the counter so I decided to eat a slice. Geeeeezzz, it was still a tad doughy inside. So I popped it back into the oven and baked again, don't know how long. But the recipe is a keeper, DH just loved it. Next time I'll press it down more, maybe 1". The flavor with the onion and cheese is good, the tablespoon of powdered sugar was good in them.

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread
2 cups bread flour, plus more for dusting
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons finely
chopped onion (or use chopped green onions)
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons shredded
Cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together bread flour, salt, and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Beat in the butter, buttermilk, and confectioners' sugar to make a dough; gently mix in the onion and Cheddar cheese. Divide dough in half, and shape each half into a ball. Place the loaves onto the prepared baking sheet, and gently flatten to about 2 inches thick. Dust each loaf with flour.
3. Bake on a preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Cool on racks for a few minutes; serve warm.

I don't know where this recipe comes from orginally...perhaps WW? ...but I got it from a Yahoo email group a few years ago. I have never figured out the calories or carbs myself but the recipe came to me with this info. Just looking at it, it seems like it should be more carbs?!! You can find many variation of this recipe online. I used less carrots and raisins today, and used unsweetened applesauce instead of apple butter...added a little more cinnamon and a little cloves and allspice and Splenda. They were really good!

1/2 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple drained
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/8 cup apple butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large eggs
1 large egg whites
Cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl.
3. Stir in carrot and next 5 ingredients. Make a well in center of mixture.
4. Combine oil and next 4 ingredients; stir with a whisk.
5. Add oil mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
6. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups coated with cooking spray.
7. Bake at 350 for 25 - 30 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center.
8. Remove muffins from pan immediately; let cool on a wire rack.
