Tuna Patties

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Budgiegirl

3 Weight Watchers points per serving. This recipe isn't core but there is less then 1 teaspoon bread crumbs per serving so you could probably count it core if you only eat one serving.

Found this during PAC 2006 and it reminded me of an old family recipe that I had not made in decades. Since this was a last minute meal, I didn't have any pimentos and used roasted red peppers instead (pimentos are peppers after all). Also, I used part onion part scallion to give a little more color to the patties. They were absolutely wonderful and inhaled. My only criticism was that even after cooking for 4 minutes, the patties still fell apart when I tried to flip them (thus no pictures). I think mom always made smaller ones -- so there were 2 per serving --which held together nicely. Thank you baby Budgiegirl.
