Well, I am venturing out from my bedroom and feel like a bear waking up from hibernation. I caught that bug that was going around, and have spent the last few days bundled up in bed, in the dark, with the TV remote, and Nyquil. I have been living on scrambled eggs, toast, soup, and saltines. Not the most exciting diet, but it was what settled and quieted the tummy rumbles.


Last night was my first meal of "real" food, and I was craving salmon patties. I know that might sound weird to some of you, but since my brief period of time living in the south 20 some years ago, they have become one of my fave comfort foods.

Back in the day I made them with saltine crackers as the binder, and fried them in quite a bit of oil.

These days I have changed them up quite a bit.

Y'all (another leftover from my time in the south) know that I love quinoa right? I have quite a few quinoa recipes here on the blog, some of which have continued to be in the most popular recipes. Recipes like my Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada QuinoaSlow Cooker Tandoori Chicken Quinoa, Grilled Ratatouille Quinoa, and Mediterranean Quinoa Salad.

That gave me the idea to use that little superfood as the binder in my favorite southern comfort food. This would give me the opportunity to add fiber and protein to the recipe, plus make it easier for me to get the rest of the gang to eat quinoa. Oh Kevin will eat it, but it isn't his fave, and Miss Picky Pants has flat out told me that she is not a fan. In fact, when I told her I was putting quinoa in the salmon patties, I got the "what you talkin' ;bout Willis" face.



She luvvvvvvs salmon patties so she was verrrrrrrrrrrry skeptical about this whole idea.

Why do they never trust me?

I wont say everything I tinker with comes out fine. But 99.9% of the time it does!

Oh ye of little faith *sigh*

Anywho, I tossed it all together, and used just a tad of oil in the pan to cook them. I made my coleslaw, and pinto beans (the traditional way we eat them), and got them on the plate.

Kevin dived right in with zero complaints 

While MPP poked at them a bit like she thought they might jump up and bite her. 

She eventually took a bite, and then another, and then begrudgingly told me that they were good.

Ah-haaaaaaa Mom does know what she is doing once in a while!!

    1. Oh you are in for a treat Rachel! Try to get the Kirkland (Costco) canned salmon if you are able to. It is the best tasting canned salmon in my opinion. You could of course use baked salmon as well.
