Salmon fromage

When I think of canned salmon, I always think of salmon patties. This is a delicious alternative to the “same old thing”.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cans salmon
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 2 Tbl finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 c flour
  • dash of Tabasco
  • 1 1/2 c cottage cheese
  • hot biscuits
  • parsley & pimento strips for garnish, optional

Drain the salmon but do not discard the liquid. Mix liquid and milk together and set aside. Break salmon into pieces using a fork, set aside. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Add onion and cook until transparent. Whisk in flour. Add milk/salmon liquid all at once and cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken. Add Tabasco. Fold in the cottage cheese and stir gently until it is heated back through. Add salmon and stir gently until heated through again. Serve over hot, split biscuits. Feeds 6.
