How To Make tuna cakes

  • 1
    Drain water from tuna and put into bowl chop all vegetables and apple into 1/4 inch pieces..I use dry mashed potato and add enough boiled to potatoes to have the consistancy of regular mashed potatoes I will sometimes cook and mash a potato but the other works just as well.
  • 2
    Add all the vegetables, apple, mayo, egg to the bowl of tuna..I use my hands to mix this all together and make the tuna cakes,,I use about 2 to 2 and a half tablespoon to make a patty.
  • 3
    Pour the bread crumbs on a plate and dip both sides of the tuna cake into the them on a platter and cool them in the fridge for 2 to 4 hours.
  • 4
    When ready to fry add oil and 1 tablespoon of butter into fry pan and cook on each side for 8 minutes or golden brown...serve with a piece of lemon and or tartar sauce..a salad goes great with.this and they freeze well..I usually make a double batch as you have one mess and 3 or 4 dinners.
