Salmon Loaf

This particular recipe seems like you could use canned salmon if you don’t have cooked salmon available, or fresh to cook. Of course, if you have fresh salmon to cook, why would you then turn it into a loaf? Just eat it! However, this might be made with leftover or the like. The use of … Continue reading

Ham and Cheese Croquettes

Well, this is unfortunate. The recipe ingredients are listed, but the method was cut off! Backing up, a croquette is a breaded and fried ball-like item. They are usually round, disc shaped or oval.

Most often made with bread and/or potato, these … Continue reading

Chow Mein Hot Dish

Chow Mein as a hot dish is not something I would have expected, but this recipe from an old notebook delivers the goods. Chow mein is often confused with chop suey – both dishes have a vegetable mix and sometimes meat included. The difference is noodles vs rice, and the fact that chow mein is
