Canned Meat and Potato Cakes

This is a recipe I put together when I first went out on my own. I was always looking for cheap meals that tasted good and this was one of them. I still make this every so often and still enjoy it just as much as I did back then. I used to make this with breadcrumbs but now use oat flour instead due to the gluten allergy. If you do not have oat flour you can make it by processing dried oatmeal in a spice grinder or use the same amount of GF breadcrumbs.

1 can (5.5 ounce) GF chicken, turkey or ham, drained
1 cup cold mashed potatoes
1 egg
3 tablespoons oat flour
2 teaspoons mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Salt to taste
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Vegetable oil (enough to cover bottom of skillet)

Break apart the meat and mix with the potatoes, egg, oat flour, mustard, garlic powder and onion powder in a bowl; form into 4 patties.
Coat the bottom of a non-stick skillet with vegetable oil and bring to medium high heat; cook the patties until browned on both sides, about five minutes per side, being careful when flipping them over.
Season the cooked patties with salt and pepper to taste.
 *Please keep in mind that not all dried herbs and spices are gluten free so check the labels to make sure the brand you are using is gluten free. The same applies for prepackaged store-bought items, check the labels to be sure. If in doubt, call the toll free number on packaging to be safe and to make your cooking/eating experience is truly gluten free.
