Salmon Cobb Burgers

On my quest to find recipes for the Meal of the Week, I came upon this Burger recipe, in the November issue of Rachael Ray's magazine. I'm always looking for new ways to use canned Salmon, so I thought I'd include it in to my recipe selection. These were really good. I especially like the way the lemon mayo, complimented the salmon and didn't taste gross with the tomato and bacon. The salmon was not overwhelming, so I was happy about that too. I used seasoned bread crumbs with cheese, since that is what I had on hand. I also used sour dough bread, instead of callagh bread. MIL injoyed hers as well, though she thought it could use onion and lettuce. DS ate his up, starting with the bacon, then tomato and then the salmon, LOL. I'd make these again.

I've only used canned salmon once, and it didn't turn out so great. This would be a great excuse for me to try it again! Thanks for participating in Saturdays with Rachael Ray!

Cindy, salmon burgers are one of my very favourite ways to eat salmon. I just love them. These sound delicious, I've never thought of putting bacon on them before and the lemon mayo sounds perfect! Thank you so much for submitting this recipe to the Culinary Smackdown challenge and good luck!
