Tried it tonight. Very good, Sticko. Sprayed the patties with Pam both sides instead of 1/2 inch of oil.

Added some Zatarains to the fish boil. The wife said next time try it with seasoned stuffing mix instead of potatoes. She misses the sage taste I guess. I'll let you know how the bread stuffing tastes.

Looks very good Dutch you cook them on a griddle or in the oven.

never heard of salmon patties made with stuffing mix. but it might be good.

make it like the oyster dressing. did that with black bass and it was good so crappie should be better.

Basically, Sticko, the altered version of your recipe is as follows:

6 to 8 or more crappie fillets (depending on size)
2 cups seasoned, dry bread stuffing mix (like for turkeys)

Boil the fillets in a lot of water that is seasoned with your favorite crab or shrimp boil. Bring the seasoned water to a rolling boil and then add fillets. Cook 2 minutes after it comes back to a rolling boli.

Drain the fish in a colendar just until the water has drained off, and mix in a large bowl with the dry stuffing mix. Add about 2 tablespoons of finely minced raw onions. Mix thoroughly with a large spoon until the stuffing has become soft from the moisture in/on the fish.

Now taste it and add seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, hot sauce, cajun spices, whatever you like). Next add two or three eggs, just enough to make a wet sticky mix. Take out 1/2 cup of mix and squash them around in your hand until it all hangs together well. (If too dry, add another egg. ) Form patties about 1/2-inch thick. Fry them until they are well browned on both sides.

Tastes a lot like turkey stuffing, with a little kick. Makes wonderful hamburgers. I like to put just mustartd on the burgers. ...or just eat them like salmon patties. I love 'em, and it uses up a lot of crappie fillets to get them out of the freezer. :)

my wife has to have the crappie patties

with home made pinto beans or black eyed peas

and fried potatoes . and cabbage.

Dutch you just use the stuffing mix as the binder instead of the boiled potato.

slap yo mama is some good seasoning for fish and steamed veggies.

most grocery stores have it.
can't believe Kroger's do not have it.

They also have it at the fish markets in seabrook.
its not really that hot but an all around good taste of spices.
