Food Friday: Fish Cakes

I know what you're thinking - what on earth? I thought Tawny promised that she was going to put up a recipe that will use up some of our Thanksgiving leftovers?

Well this is it!  I assure you.

Do you ever have leftover stuffing?

It tends not to last in our house, but I've heard that other people have some leftover occasionally.

Wanna make something really different with it?

Fish cakes!


Leftover Stuffing (or a box of Stove Top Stuffing will work as well) ***
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
can of tuna (drained, flaked) - or if you happen to have leftover tuna as well?
1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons tartar sauce

*** I'll let you in on a little secret - I hate homemade stuffing.  I made some wonderful crock pot stuffing one year to make Terry happy.  He ate it up and I just about puked.  I hate the taste of ground pork as well as sage and thyme. It all tastes like dirt to me.  I don't know what they put in Stove Top stuffing, but it's the only thing I can stand.  EEEP! I know!  I'm a weird duck.

Anyway... back to the recipe.

Mix the stuffing (or the stuffing mix from the box), water, dressing, tuna, celery, cheese and tartar sauce - basically all the ingredients together.  Shape into patties.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Heat large skillet with a bit of oil in the bottom. Add patties to skillet.

Cook about 6 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.  Turn carefully after about 3 minutes.

They tend to fall apart a little.  But they are still yummy nummy.

And it's a new and delicious way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers. :D
