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 crumbs..place 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.
