S is for Salmon Patties

Admittedly this isn't the most exciting S post you will read, but I promise they are delicious!
Jenny Matlock

Salmon Patties
2 cans Salmon, drained and mushed
2 eggs - beaten (gotten from the chickens down the road - right?!)
1 cup bread crumbs (preferrably from your own homemade bread or rolls)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder - (I am out of onion otherwise I would have sauteed about a quarter cup and added instead)
1/2 tsp dried mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1 cube spinach, 1 cube squash - thawed (optional but yummy)(I cooked, mashed and froze these in icecube trays and add them to lots of things)
1/2 - 1 cup shredded cheese (optional) I used pepperjack for spice - I added this after I made Joe's dairy free

Mix all thoroughly. Take a handful of the mix and mold into a patty shape, put in HOT pan covered in  bacon grease. Pat down with spatula to flatten. Cook for several minutes and then flip. The patty should be brown. Cook on second side several more minutes till cooked through. Continue until all is cooked.
We like to eat them with ketchup. They would be delicious on a bun with a slice of cheese melted on top. Great alternative to hamburgers. We eat these a lot in Lent.
Serves 6, more or less.

Sadly my main computer is on the fritz and I can't upload pictures on this antique computer. Imagine lovely pictures if you wouldn't mind.(Updated to add these yummy pictures)

Now hop on over to Mrs. Jenny Matlock's class and read all the other essays.

I will be linking to Life as Mom's Frugal Fridays, Food Renegade's Fight Back Fridays, and Ann Kroekers Food on Friday and Notes from the Cookie Jar's Food Revolution Friday.


  1. I love this recipe. I can adjust for gluten free. I am also dairy free. I have 2 cans of salmon in the cupboard and must use before I move in 2 weeks. Thanks for giving me a great recipe to use up my salmon. Have a great weekend.

  2. I haven't made salmon patties for a long time. This sounds like a yummy recipe.

  3. My mom used to make Salmon patties all the time. They loved them. Great S post.

  4. We used to have salmon cakes at least once a week when I was growing up. I think it's time to make them again!

  5. We love salmon! I wonder if this recipe would work with leftover grilled salmon meat rather than canned salmon. Have you ever tried that? :)

  6. These sound delicious - a lovely light meal with some salad on a hot day!

  7. Salmon patties. I need to try that. But you know what I loved in this recipe? Your frozen cubes trick. I've read about that before, but never act on it. Then, deep in winter when I need stuff like that, I never have it.

    I need veggie reminders via e-mail sitting in my in-box to hold me accountable: "Have you frozen cubes of spinach today, Ann?"

  8. I haven't made salmon patties in a while. I'll have to make them again soon. I like to chop them up and add to my green salad. Mmmm!

  9. i grew up with salmon patties ... my did used to fish and we had salmon all of the time. Your recipe sounds wonderful!

  10. Yummmy!! What a great S post. I can picture them and my mouth is watering.

  11. My husband would adore these. I like the whole idea except the salmon part...ha! I keep trying and trying to like it.

    I thought when I was younger I would grow into the taste - like coffee. And now I love coffee but still can't do the salmon!

    Maybe when I hit 60!

    Thanks for such a fun (and popular) recipe on this weeks Alphabe-Thursday!

    Hope you get your computer fixed soon!


  12. Great idea! Thanks for sharing! I will give them a try!


  13. These sound really good. I'm always looking for fish recipes that my husband might like- he's kind of picky about fish... I'll have to try these!
    I'd love if you stop by for a visit!

  14. ok, so I don't do fish, I find it a bit smelly and I am probably stupid but that is how it I hope everyone else enjoys your recipe!!!

  15. Yummm! WE love salmon patties! I have never added spinach or squash...that sounds great :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (oh...I can so "picture" them in my mind haha)
    thank you also for stopping by! and for your encouragement that I will get my quilts completed...thus my extended deadline to complete them for future grandbabies and also deciding on making them crib size instead fo the original twin size! :o)

  16. I haven't had salmon patties in a while~ love the "cube" idea :-)

  17. This sounds really good-I like how you have the added veggies in there, too.

  18. Gluten free is a great way to lose weight...I lost weight in two weeks just be eliminating it all. Of course I went back and gained it all back. Not into Salmon, but this recipe looks great. Thanks for popping over. The cross is already distressed, I did it that day after I said it:)

  19. Yum! We love salmon patties. I love the idea for putting cubes of frozen veggies into the mixture. When I want to get fancy, I bread mine before cooking--fresh crumbs work best for that. Back in the early years of our marriage we did mackerel patties--a lot. At forty-nine cents a can, it was pretty cheap protein. Can't wait to try your pepper jack option!

  20. We love salmon patties!! I use corn meal instead of bread crumbs because hubby is gluten-free. I also put a little mayo in them and this makes them so moist! I like to serve them with mac and cheese and pickled beets! This was one of those meals my mom made and I always think of her when I fix them! Thanks for the reminder.

  21. I have to try this recipe. I'm trying to get more fish into our diet, these sound great!

  22. Thanks, Christy. I might make these for the Bear soon! I love a new recipe.

  23. Thanks, Christy. I might make these for the Bear soon! I love a new recipe.
