This Week's Cravings: Mother's Day Brunch



Yesterday was Mother's Day ~ I hope all my wonderful, Mommy blogger friends had a fabulous day yesterday.


Today at This Week's Cravings, we are sharing our Mother's Day brunch recipes - brunch covers a wide range: breakfast, light lunch options, salads, beverages... What did you have on Mother's Day?


My recipe today isn't exactly what I had yesterday, but it's my idea of a wonderful brunch dish. :) I love smoked salmon, capers, red onions, bagels, yum yum yum. This dish is an easy way to serve salmon and all the fixings.



Salmon Patties



  • 1 can pink salmon


  • 1 egg


  • 2 Tb sour cream or unflavored yogurt


  • 1 Tb dill


  • salt and pepper



  1. Whisk egg in a small bowl.


  2. Drain salmon. Flake and add to egg. Add remaining ingredients.


  3. This is very wet, kinda thin. You could add 1-2 Tb flour if you like, but I was trying to stay gluten-free.


  4. Drop by tablespoons onto a lightly greased baking pan. It will spread out quite a bit, but that's ok! Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes; check at 4-5 minutes and flip.


  5. Serve with thinly sliced red onion, capers, tomato slices, bread or bagels, cream cheese or this yummy, simple dip....



Dill Yogurt Dip



  • 1 Tb dill


  • 1/8 cup unflavored yogurt, greek would be fantastic


  • pinch salt & pepper



  1. Combine and chill until ready to serve.



Lay out the patties and garnishes on a large platter and let guests stack their own!
