And I have been cooking, a lot and creating delicious pairings (which will be featured on my new website!!!)
Oh silly me, I forgot to let you know, I have been working with a graphic designer and we are creating the Cookteen website! She's awesome and I am so excited!!! Hopefully everything will be done by the end of August so keep a look out. We will be having some fun give aways to celebrate when the site is launched.
Anyways, one morning before work I made breakfast for my family. The previous night we had salmon for dinner and with the one extra piece left over, I decided to use it for breakfast!! The original plan was a spin-off of lox, eggs and onions (except cooked salmon instead of lox). But then I remembered the delicious salmon cakes my mom used to make with leftover salmon as a little appetizer to dinner and I decided to make them for breakfast!
These are super easy to make and don't require too many ingredients: eggs, salmon and Matzo meal. Bread crumbs could work but you would definitely need more of them because they aren't as absorbent. I learned that when I accidentally made my Milk-Chocolate Potato Chip Tart with flour instead of Matzo meal. That was one sticky mess.
Heat a skillet with a bit of butter. Mix the concoction until uniform and then dollop onto the skillet. Cook for 3-5 minutes on one side and then flip and cook until patties spring back to touch and are fully cooked.
You might need to cut the first one in half to see how long it takes on your stove.
To heat them up after they are all cooked, just throw them all in the pan for a minute or two to bring back that outer heat that was lost while you cooked the others.

Goal of the Week: To get as many posts as I can before July 29th!!
With love and cupcakes,
4-5 oz cooked salmon
1/3 cup Matzo Meal
Salt and Pepper
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whip until nice and airy. Salt and pepper (I am really tempted to say "to taste" but please don't taste raw eggs). Add in the salmon and mash with fork to flake and mix. Stir in the matzo meal.
Heat a skillet with a bit of butter (or Pam if your into that type of thing) and spoon mixture (like pancakes) onto it. Cook for about 3-5 minutes and then flip and cook until thoroughly cooked. Serve with cream cheese.
