    Default Plain ol' Potatoes Au Gratin/Salmon patties


    I made some simple Potatoes Au Gratin last night.
    I tossed some Yukon gold potatoes with some melted butter, then topped
    with shredded cheddar cheese and baked.
    Deliciously good and cheesy.

    Tonight I made salmon patties with some fresh green beans that were
    cooked in a skillet with some butter.
    I've been eating pretty darned good.

    I'm having some good leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

    Koko, could you please post your recipe for salmon patties? I don't need
    specific instructions, but a list of ingredients/quantities would suffice.

    I used to love my mother's salmon patties but never knew how she made them.
    I haven't been too excited over versions I've tried.

    TIA

    I'm almost embarrassed to tell you how I make them. I usually just
    keep them plain and simple.
    I use a can of wild caught Alaskan salmon, drained. To the salmon add
    some finely chopped onion, to your taste of course and a beaten egg.
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    Then I add either some cracker crumbs, from saltine crackers that I've
    crushed, or bread crumbs. Add just enough to bring it all together and
    a gently shaped patty will not crumble in your hand. Then cook in a
    skillet in butter over a medium heat.

    Last night was the first time I ever added some finely diced celery. I
    don't think I'll do it again, it wasn't bad, just didn't make that big
    of a difference in the final product.

    Thanks for asking, hope you like them.

    That's the way I make mine, too - I usually use cracker crumbs, and
    not only add some celery, but also some bell pepper if I have any
    lying around. I like the extra crunch.

    Sounds kind of dry. What I do for potatoes au gratin:

    1. Start potatoes to boiling, peeled and cut any way you like. Put a lot
    of salt in the water so the salt flavor will infuse in the potatoes.

    2. Make your own cream of mushroom. I just make it "look right":

    sliced white button mushrooms
    a teaspoon of butter
    heavy cream

    3. Get the shrooms going in the butter, saute for a bit, add cream. Let
    it heat up until it's bubbling, then dump into a blender and liquefy.

    4. Put the freshly-made cream of mushroom into a saucepan. Add
    colby-monterey jack cheese blend to the cream of mushroom. Gauge how much
    cheese sauce you have compared to the amount of potatoes you're working
    with, then just add cheese and milk until you get it right.

    5. Taste to make sure the salt content is right. Of course, you can't
    remove salt, but it's always easy to fix it if you need to had just a tad.

    6. Drain the potatoes VERY well and then toss into the cheese sauce.

    Enjoy! If you're feeling adventurous, a nice way to enjoy this is with a
    dollop of sour cream on top, and some crumbled, crispy bacon, and fresh
    chives.

    Technically, I guess that's not potatoes au gratin, but we nicknamed it
    "old rotten potatoes".

    Oh! LOL I thought you meant you put green beans IN the salmon patties.
    Those actually look pretty good. I typically only use fancy white
    albacore tuna, not salmon. Or sometimes I mix albacore, salmon, and
    chicken.

    That's about how I put together my tuna patties, but after forming mine
    into patties, I coat them with something. Sometimes it's just flour, and
    sometimes a mixture of flour and cornmeal with a little baking powder
    added for an interesting crispness that can't be achieved without it. And,
    I also like to add a little creole seasoning mix to the coating, too. Then
    I put them in a skillet with about an inch of peanut oil and fry them on
    one side, then the other. Your version without the coating sounds
    interesting. And what isn't made infinitely tastier by being butterfried?
    lol

    When I saw the little greenies in your image, it made me think about
    trying finely chopped green onions instead of diced white onions in my
    next batch of tuna patties.

    Oh, yeah. I sometimes use about six or seven slices of bread from a food
    processor as a binding agent, adding more as necessary until the patties
    don't fall apart. I don't like the texture of using crackers. But now
    that I think about it, I would like to try that with toast instead of
    bread, just to see how it affects the looks of it, if nothing else.
