This is one of those times it half way turned out. These are two recipes that I was disappointed with.

The first one is my version of traditional Newfie Fish Cakes. Since Grandma Perry's recipe did not have any measurements I had to guess at it.

Grandma Perry's Fish Cakes

6 cups cooked potatoes
1 onion chopped
2 cups salt cod- cooked, boned, torn
1/2 cup flour
1 piece of salt pork fried

Mash potatoes adding rest of the ingredients.
Form into patties
Roll into the flour and fry in the rendered pork fat

Seems simple enough right? Okay my version of the recipe was taking the cod out and replacing it with squash.
Yep, squash.
And using vegetable oil instead of the pork fat. So the fish and pork were taken completely out of the recipe and replaced.

Kimberly's Veggie Cakes

3 medium potatoes chopped
1 onion chopped
1 package chopped squash
1 cup vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups flour

Mash the cooked potatoes and add the onion and stir in squash, salt and pepper
Form into patties
Roll in flour and cook in the vegetable oil

If you have been working some of the recipes out there for sneaking veggies into thing so your kids won't know, this is actually a great way to do it.
