These burgers remind me of my childhood! My mom used to make salmon patties for us all the time and my favorite was when she would make extra, and for lunch the next day, we would have them as burgers! Yum!
So now that I'm in charge of the meals, sometimes we skip right to the burger phase! Although I still do love them plain!
Makes 2 thick burgers, or 4 thin
5 oz salmon (I use two 2.5 oz packages)
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until well combined. Spray a hot skillet with cooking spray and cook burgers on medium for about 5-6 minutes (turning 1/2 way through) or until the burger seems firm and the outside is browned.
Place your burger on a bun and top with *tarter sauce (or 1000 island dressing) and lettuce.
*Making your own tater sauce is really easy! All you need is
miracle whip (about 1-2 cup)
lemon juice (about 1 TBS)
sweet relish (a few TBS)
spicy brown mustard (optional-- about 2 tsp-ish)
onion powder (a dash or 2)
salt and pepper (a dash or 2)
mix well and chill until ready to serve.
