Cooking with Dog

No, no...I'm not cooking dogs or anything funky like that. I'm referring to my favorite cooking series on YouTube. The "host" is a poodle with a bad accent named Francis. Francis narrates the cooking segment as a lady stands next to him doing the actual cooking. If you haven't seen it before, check it out. It's pretty entertaining.

Francis inspired me to make my own croquettes. I didn't have the exact ingredients so I altered the recipe. Instead of the ground beef and pork, I used leftover grilled salmon that I flaked up. The potato patties were a bit soft but held up surprisingly well during frying.

These were good but next time I'm going by the recipe and using ground pork and beef. I bet chopped up ham would be really good too or mixed veggies if you didn't want to use meat.

I've seen this video on someone else's blog before, funny stuff!

I'm sure ham would be nice in this!

I hadn't seen the video before, that's pretty good. The croquettes look awesome!

CWTD is also my favourite Channel :-) She made it so easy and quite fast with her preparation as well. What am worried was the dog next to the stove and all...:-D

I love Cooking With Dog too. Francis is so cute. These croquettes are similar to the potato pancakes I make only I don't roll them in bread crumbs and deep fry them. I will have to ry it. I usually use ground turkey or scredded baked chicken. I'm inspired now.

Hi Pixen! I often wonder how they get Francis the dog to sit so still by that stove too. lol :)

Marisa - These croquettes were a great way to use up leftovers. Ground turkey sounds good!!

Thanks everyone for dropping by. I appreciate it. :)
