This is the only recipe I have for tuna that my kids and husband will even eat! The secret is the Lawry’s Seasoning Salt. It totally covers up the fishy tuna taste. What I LOVE about this recipe, other than it’s super quick and easy, it’s so frugal. It’s perfect for the times you have more month than paycheck 🙂 It’s also great for when you need a meat to go with dinner but only have frozen options. Just go to your pantry and grab a can, or two!
I serve this with mashed potatoes, Cheesy Garlic Buttered Noodles, and peas. Although I’m the only one that eats peas here, I try to add some color! In a pinch you can ground up some croutons in place of the bread crumbs.
Obviously if eating gluten free, sub GF bread crumbs, or I have even ground up oats and used those to make it GF. If you do just add some Italian seasoning. It’s an easy to change recipe.
- 2 cans tuna (6oz), drained
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 Tbls Lawry's seasoning salt
- veg. oil for frying small amount
- Mix all ingredients well
- Form into patties (mixture will be soft)
- Fry in skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked
I realize the picture quality isn’t great. I took pictures inside and at night. The twins have their first illness, a bad cold, and I was trying to be as quick as possible while they were happy sitting on their own. Let’s just say having 1 sick baby is bad, having 2 sick babies is very bad!! I’m praying they continue to get better and don’t develop any other infections.
Anyway, try out this recipe, even tuna hating folks love it!
