When growing up we had salmon patties, peas and fried potatoes. To this day I cannot eat salmon patties without peas and fried potatoes. They just seem to go together.

Approx. 1 C. bread crumbs or saltine cracker crumbs
Salt and pepper

Mix salmon, egg and crumbs together. Salt and pepper to taste. Form into patties and fry until golden brown on each side.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Elizabeth and Joshua Clark would never eat tuna until they tried Aunt Jeanette’s. This is also one of Jim Grady’s favorite meals. A peanut butter sandwich is very good with this dish. Dunkerton High School always had peanut butter sandwiches with their tuna noodle.

1 pkg. noodles
1 can tuna, drained
1 lb. Velveeta cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can peas, optional
Potato chips

Cook noodles until done. Add tuna, soup and peas. Cut cheese into chunks and put in mixture. Put potato chips on top. Bake at 350º for about an hour, or until cheese is melted. This is a good way to use up old potato chips.
