Italian Tuna Patties

READY IN: 1hr 18mins
Recipe by mailbelle

One of my favorite cheap & easy lunches. I like them with a dollop of mayonnaise or tarter sauce, or serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato and mayo. I've even reheated the leftover patties the next day in my toaster!

I tried this in my ongoing effort to add more fish to my family's diet. It worked for us because there is no noticeable flavor of fish. I had jumbo eggs, so I needed to add a little more dry crumbs to the mix. I will definitely be using this recipe over and over! Edited to Add...we love this recipe even more formed into small "meatballs"...they're awesome served with mac and cheese!
