Living in the land of picky eaters means that I have to tinker with recipes…a lot. In any given culinary experiment, I am usually forced to omit one, if not several ingredients because either the Heathens or my husband will not touch the dish otherwise. I’ve worked hard to get the kids eating proteins beyond chicken, chicken and more chicken. Oh, how I’ve worked, Progress is slow, but they’ve come a long way in the past year. They both embraced sausage, bacon and steak, but seafood is still hit and miss.
I recently stumbled on a new way to make Salmon Croquettes that helped further the cause. You really should try these. They are dang tasty.
- 1 can (14.7 oz) salmon (you'll need to take out the bones and junk)
- 1 pkg. herb stuffing mix
- 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (fresh dude)
The Heathens eat these with ketchup (*sigh*), but I bet a good Remoulade would be awesome too. My husband saves the extra patties (if there are any extras) and slaps them on a burger bun with cheese for lunch the next day.
An entrée for less than $5 that the kids actually eat? One that’s not chicken?
I call that score one for mom.
