Salmon Patties, Garlic Bread, Broccoli

This salmon patty recipe is from my mom, whom I absolutely love to death (and not just because she gave me this recipe)! You are welcome to serve them as burgers on buns with pickles, lettuce, and onion (but no cheese!!! Fish and cheese do NOT go together well. Just sayin'...).

2 eggs
2 t mustard
2 t minced onion
4 Saltine crackers, crushed (or Italian breadcrumbs, etc)
1/2 t seasoned salt
1/4 t pepper
1 c Simply Potatoes refrigerated Southwestern hashbrowns (This is actually a very critical ingredient. If you use other kinds of refrigerated hashbrowns, try adding cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes for a nice kick.)
2 (5 to 7 oz) cans boneless, skinless salmon, drained
2 t oil
2 t butter

tartar sauce

1 cucumber, sliced thin (optional)
broccoli florets

4 slices of bread or 1 loaf French bread
garlic powder
Parmesan cheese

In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Mix in mustard, minced onion, cracker crumbs, seasoned salt, and pepper with a fork. Then stir in hashbrowns. Next add salmon, flaking with fork and stirring until well mixed. Form into 4-6 patties on a plate. Heat oil and butter in a pan on medium heat. Use a spatula to transfer patties into pan. Brown patties about 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown on the first side. Then flip and cook 3-4 minutes more, until second side is golden brown.

Serve salmon patties on their own, passing mustard and tartar sauce at the table. Top with cucumbers, if desired.

Steam broccoli; season with salt and pepper.

Make garlic bread by buttering slices of bread or French bread and sprinkling on garlic powder and Parmesan cheese to taste. If using French bread, wrap loaf in foil and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. If using regular bread, place on a baking sheet and broil just until butter is melted.
