Comforting Tuna Patties
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min./batch
So I did make these last night for dinner. They are very tasty. I didn't have evaporated milk so I used 1/2 n 1/2, worked fine. I also added a couple of ingredients which really kicked them up. I added about a teaspoon of pepper flakes and about a dozen chopped green olives. Also I increased the green onion from 1 to 3. Oh and the one thing I should have done was drain the tuna. It was too wet when trying to make the patties. Otherwise it's a yummy and we have 2 left over so they will be put into sandwiches!
I've been using a different recipe for 50 years but I think I'm going to try this one just for a little variety.
Do you drain the tuna?
I also have a recipe from my Grandmother and Mom; but made differently. :)
I tried these patties and they are delicious. They are easy to make and the chilling time lets me make them early and then put them on the griddle just before dinner. I served them with mashed potatoes and a salad, but I think that having them on a burger bun with the extras would be good also. A nice tartar sauce would make a tasty go-with too. Definitely a keeper! And economical as well.
