This is another recipe that I've been making for years. I actually lost it for a long time and was thrilled to stumble upon it in a huge stack of recipes I had in a box. This recipe was originally from Miracle Whip and something I probably clipped from a magazine, because we don't ever buy Miracle Whip! I use regular mayo. This is for dinner tonight w/ some mixed vegetables and cucumbers in sour cream (another family fave that I need to share!)
1 - 12 oz can tuna (or 2 five ounce sized cans. I actually double this recipe for our family of 6 & use 4 five ounce cans. My big kids eat several patties.) 1/4 cup mayo 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1/4 cup each finely chopped celery, green onions, green bell pepper and red bell pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/4 cups dry bread crumbs oil for frying
1. Mix tuna, mayo, mustard, chopped veggies, seasonings are 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs. 2. Shape mixutre into 2-inch balls, roll in remaining bread crumbs; coating well. Flatten balls into small patties. 3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. 5. Add tuna patties and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. 6. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.
I'm a Catholic mom to a family of 4 sharing the odds and ends about our day-to-day life; what we're creating, what we're doing, where we're going, what we're reading and what's on our dinner table. And, how we're keeping things simple in the big city.
O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant that I may ever invoke Thy most powerful name, which is the safeguard of the living and the salvation of the dying.
