Move over, leftover salmon burgers. Introducing your new favorite: salmon waffles! Smoky, crispy and cheesy, these salmon waffles are a delicious way to use cooked salmon for breakfast, lunch or dinner! A panini grill would also work for this recipe.
Cook Time: 35 mins.
8-9 ounces cooked Bristol Bay sockeye salmon (substitute canned), flaked into small bits
5 strips bacon, cooked till crisp and finely chopped
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
half a bell pepper, finely chopped
2 green onions, minced
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
2/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Sour cream, for serving
In a medium mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except the sour cream. Mixture should hold together when squeezed into a ball.
Spray a waffle iron (or panini press) with cooking spray and heat till hot. Place 3/4 cup of the salmon mix in the middle of the iron and close. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Repeat with remaining salmon mix, being sure to clean and spray the iron before adding more mix.
Serve immediately topped with a dollop of sour cream.
