Happy Birthday Breetel!

Twenty-three years ago today, the earth was graced with Breetel’s presence. To honor this event I made her a breakfast of salmon cakes, hash browns, fried salmon skin, bacon, fried eggs, and mimosas. All of Breetel’s favorite things. Also, toast made in her brand-new toaster oven!

Happy Birthday Bree. Love you.

Salmon Cakes


1 lb salmon, skin removed

1/4 red onion, diced

1/4 cup corn kernels (frozen or canned is fine)

1 egg

1/3-1/2 cup bread crumbs

1-3 tbs any fresh herb, finely chopped

salt & pepper

Preparation: Cut the salmon into small pieces. Mix with all ingredients in a bowl. Do the breadcrumbs last because you just want to add enough for the slightly sticky mixture to hold together. To form patties gently form a ball and flatten slightly. Pan fry. Top with fresh herbs for a fancy look.

Note: A runny egg belongs on top of these fish cakes.

Hash Browns


1/2 potato per person

salt & pepper

Preparation: Grate potato and squeeze out excess moisture. Season, shape into patties, and pan fry. Drain on paper towels and salt (potatoes love this).

Fried salmon skin is so delicious: crispy and salty. Just drop it in oil.

My birthday present to Breetel. No more forgetting toast under the broiler.
