Salmon Patties

Today was an off-day.  It took me forever to wake up, get up, get dressed and drag my butt to work.  Once there, everything was in slow-motion.  Now that I'm home, I wanted a quick, easy, no-brainer supper that wouldn't take up much time.  I'm actually thinking of heading to bed soon just to get this day over with!!  Good thing these days aren't very frequent!

Salmon Patties
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 medium onion, diced
1 6-oz can salmon packed in water, without bones or skin, drained
2 egg whites, whisked
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs

Directions:
In a bowl, mix together onion, salmon, egg whites, Dijon, and bread crumbs.
Using your hands, form mixture into 4 large patties, each about 4 or 5 inches in diameter.  Heat a large nonstick or cast-iron pan over medium-high for 1 minute. Mist with cooking spray.
Place all 4 patties in pan and cook for 2 1/2 -3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove patties from pan and set aside. (Experiment with the time -- I find 2 1/2 minutes doesn't cook 'em well enough, and 3 minutes run the risk of burning them.)

Enjoy!
