I couldn't find the Gotta be KD post with any amount of ease so I just thought I'd make a new one.

The following is not for everyone. It is for those whom are truly interested in the finer points of bachelor cuisine. Dad's with young children and one cooking night per week may want to sit down and pay attention too.

I'll admit, despite its perceived grossness, not being much of a fan of canned fish in general, and possible lack of any nutritional value, this is one of my all-time favourite dishes for as long as I can remember.

I know it as... "that salmon, peas and macaroni casserole thingy"



Before you judge it, I dare you to try it. The flavour combination is incredible.

What you need:

  • Kraft Dinner, 1 box.
  • Frozen Peas, 1 cup.
  • Canned Salmon, 1 regular sized can.
  • 5 saltine crackers (Premium Plus is the only way to go)
  • Cheddar Cheese (very little)


The casserole consists of three essential layers.
Bottom: Salmon
Middle: Peas
Top: prepared KD

The topping is optional but highly recommended and thats where the Saltines & Cheddar come in.

Here is a photo journal of how to prepare it.


1. Cook KD as you normally would.
2. Pre-heat oven to 350F




3. distribute salmon on bottom of small casserole dish.
4. microwave frozen peas (with small amount of water) for about 2-3 minutes. Distribute peas ontop of salmon evenly.


5. Prepare KD to your liking. I personally prefer adding pepper to mine.

















6. Pour prepared KD over peas in casserole dish. Be certain to leave a few spoonfulls out to nibble on while waiting for baking.




7. Demolish 5 Premium Plus Saltine Crackers and distribute over Kraft Dinner


8. Grate cheddar cheese over crackers


9. Install in oven, bake for about 10-15 minutes until cheese is fully melted. Don't forget, you're warming up the salmon at the bottom too... That's why I told you to leave some KD out to nibble on.


10. Finished casserole should look similar to this. If it doesn't, you must've fucked it up somehow.


Bon Appetite.

As a side note,

You can also add part of a can of cream of celery soup (or other types of creamy soup) to the salmon to give it a bit of moisture.

I also drain away the salmon juice and feed it to my cats.

Brian..............I bet it TASTES good..............but I don't eat about 99% of the ingredients listed on your recipe lol. (refined flour, farmed salmon, modified food starch, etc etc.)

Yes, I'm one of those healthy-eaters lol.

BUT, I won't deny that your dish SOUNDS good to eat! It really does.

Hmm...since I don't eat fish (blech), especially canned fish (double blech), I'm going to have to give this a try with chicken.

Okay, hijack time (I may have mentioned this before)...

Last Thanksgiving, I was having an "intellectual" conversation with my 8 (now 9) year old nephew. He mentioned something that is actually quite thought provoking. "Why do mammals all have different names for their meat? Why do we eat beef, venison, and pork instead of cow, deer, and pig?"

I responded, quite toungue in cheek, "Well, when I eat squirrel, I just call it squirrel."

This didn't provoke any deep thought from him. It didn't provoke any laughter. He just said, "Oh, I never thought of that."

End of discussion.

Sometimes, kids are so weird.

After the Norman conquest of England, the whole aristocracy in England were French-speaking Normans, and English had become the language of farmers and peasants. So the words for the animals in the field all stayed English ("sheep"). But when the animals showed up on the table of the nobleman who could afford to eat meat, they became French: ("mutton"/"mouton").

Pretty cool linguistic question for a kid.
