Southern Salmon Patties

I learned this recipe from my grandma. It is one of things I really love but do not eat too often. I prefer pan searing or frying with olive oil but you can use whatever oil you chose. There are no special seasonings to this simple southern delight.

1 can of Pink Salmon (any brand) or 2 baked or grilled salmon fillets
1/2 cup of Pepperidge Farm Stuffing (bread crumbs)
1/4 cup of chopped onions
1 egg
Olive Oil
Cast Iron Skillet (or regular skillet)

Step 1:Blend bread crumbs and onions into the can of pink salmon.
Step 2: Add egg last and stir until all contents well blended.
Step 3: Flatten salmon mixture into patties as large or as small as you like but not too thick.
Step 4: Add olive oil into your skillet and set on medium.
            Wait until oil is sizzling then add each patty.
Step 5: Cook each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Final Steps:
Really good as salmon burgers or with buttermilk biscuits and some veggies. Enjoy :)

No bake Oreo dirt Cake

I was desperate this fourth of July for a dessert.My almond bark for my truffles would NOT melt and I literally had 30 minutes before family and friends were arriving. I opened the pantry and saw 2 boxes of instant pudding and oreos. I decided to go with it. Use whatever flavor of Oreos you want. The picture to the right is just some awesome alternative flavor options.

1pkg Oreos
1 8 oz Cream Cheese (Low or no Fat)
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding
1 container whipped cream
1 cup of Milk or Soy Milk

1. Crumble Oreos in a freezers bag to create your crust. After it is crumbled mix it with cream cheese and layer the bottom of a glass dish. For crunchy crust OMIT cream cheese. I was going for a soft crust.
2. Prepare the first box of instant pudding. Cascade the finish product over the crust of your choice.
3. Dip Oreos into milk for just a second and lay on top of pudding. Repeat until entire layer of pudding is covered with cookies.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. For the final step cover the last layer of pudding with cool whip. It spreads better after it has warmed just a little bit.
6. Crumble about 3 or 4 Oreos for the topping and ENJOY!
