Some co-workers and I decided to do a weight loss challenge. We all wanted to lose around 25lbs and I knew we all had a Wii game and balance board. Since we can compete over WiFi I thought why don't we support each other and make it a challenge to lose weight together as a competition.
So I started my diet this Monday (after a Saturday binge of cheesecake) and I wanted to find some nice recipes to try.
This recipe has been written down in one of my notebooks forever. Where did I find it is a mystery but I do know it's a weight watchers recipe and it's only 3 points. It's very quick and easy. It was pulled out when I realized I still had mashed potatoes in my freezer I needed to use and there was a can of salmon in my pantry.
I ate one of the cakes with steamed zucchini, yellow squash and onion with garlic. It was delicious as well as healthy. I highly recommend!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 14 3/4 oz can of salmon drained and flaked
2 scallions, chopped ( I used onion. I couldn't find scallions anywhere!)
1 tbsp mustard (I used stone ground mustard. The recipe didn't say what type)
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup dried bread crumbs
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Combine all ingredients except the bread crumbs together. Form into 8 patties (these will be large so make sure you use a cookie sheet). Coat with bread crumbs. Place on the baking sheet. Spray with nonstick spray and bake until hot 15 minutes. (I baked mine a bit longer and turned them so they would brown on each side. I also didn't spray with the nonstick spray)
Per serving (1 cake)
