Mom had a great visit and I’m so glad she cooked for me. As usual, she helped with the laundry and some light house chores. We took pictures too! I always say that I have Southern tendencies, and I owe them all to my mother’s North Carolina, Southern belle swag LOL. Here is her recipe for Salmon Patties 🙂

½ chopped onion
2 cans of salmon (drain one can)
2 eggs
one roll of crackers, crushed (she uses saltines)
dash paprika
1 tsp dry mustard

Cheese Grits, Scrambled Eggs, and Salmon Patties

Combine all of the ingredients and form your salmon patties like you would a hamburger or black bean burger. Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. When the oil is hot, place patties in the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Depending on their size, this recipe will make 6-8 salmon patties.

Follow the directions on the box for Quaker Quick Grits. Add your favorite cheese after they thicken and while they are in their final simmering stages. I won’t share my mom’s seasoning for her grits. Sorry 🙁 Make your eggs the way you like ’em. My mom uses a ton of butter and Velveeta Cheese! Use the leftover patties for sandwiches!!

I can’t eat like I used to but I enjoyed indulging all weekend. I also cooked for her. Check out Smothered Pork Chops: Healthier Gravy!!
