Very simple and tasty tuna patties with a slight difference, mashed potatoes.

Pretty darn good and a good way to use up that little bit of leftover mashed potato. I added a bit of garlic to my potatoes, and added chopped scallion and some no-salt seasonings to the mix, just to up the flavor factor. Mr Grumpy ate without complaining much, he did not really like the texture all that much, but he ate all of his dinner. Served with green salad and buttered noodles.
- 1 cup packaged refrigerated garlic-flavor mashed potatoes (or use your own homemade as long as they aren't very wet)

- 1⁄3 cup seasoned dry bread crumb
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped celery
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
