Tuna Patties

Tuna Patties

My hubs use to make Salmon patties and we all loved them.  I, personally don’t like removing the bones in the canned salmon, do you?  But I wanted some.  So, I made Tuna Patties instead.  They were great!  In fact, we were fighting over the last one.  Turns out that 2 isn’t enough for us.  In addition to using tuna instead, I also used panko. But you could also use other ingredients in lieu of. Like crushed up crackers, bread crumbs or even stove top stuffing.

This is one of the most simple and quick recipes I’ve made that seems as if you spent a lot of time on. If you’re feeding a small crowd (or no men), you’ll only need one batch with a standard size (12″) skillet.  If you’re making more, plan on making “batches” of them and adding on the cook time.  OR, you could always use two skillets.

If you have read any of my other recipes, I talk about getting my 18 year old daughter to try things she thinks she wouldn’t like.  This was another one of those foods.  Long story short…..she was right there fighting for the last one.  Turns out, she likes these too.  Mom wins AGAIN!

Tuna Patties

Best if served with some steamed veggies, however, I always get suckered into making mac n cheese when the little ones are here.  But I prefer the veggies.  What would you serve with yours?

Sides with that?

White Shells and Cheese


Queso Blanco Rice

Cheesy Green Beans

  1. Wow amazing, didn’t pair with any sides due to calorie counting, but did use some mustard dip, happy to make this super simple dinner. Next time will try it as a burger! Thanks for the recipe

  2. Yum! I almost passed over these pinned on Pinterest by my teen son was walking by and said “Hey, those look good!” I think we will make these into Tuna Burgers as an alternative to beef patties. And mac ‘n cheese makes it to our table plenty as well, it’s what the toddler loves! Sometimes, I forgo the “cheese” part and do macaroni noodles with peas and a bit of parmesan!

      Have a great day!
