Tuna Patties

Mom used salmon but every time I bought a can of salmon it was full on bones. So I switched her recipe to tuna patties.


6 cans of tuna in oil

3 eggs

1/2 cup of garlic herb bread crumbs

1 tsp marjoram

Oil for cooking

Flour for breading


Open tuna and drain 3 cans of tuna, dump into bowl. Open the other 3 cans and dump oil and tuna into bowl.

Crack eggs into a smaller bowl, beat till mixed and dump into tuna

Add in marjoram and bread crumbs. Mix well. You may have to add in more bread crumbs if tuna does not stay together to form a patty.

Heat oil at medium high about a 6 on electric stove.

Place flour in a pie plate or dish where you can flour tuna patty and flip side to side in your hands

Grab a handful of flour in one hand and Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of tuna mixture with the other

Drop the tuna onto the flour in your hand. Pick up flour from plate and top tuna with flour. Press tuna down to form a patty.

Add in flour as needed to prevent from sticking to your hands.

Toss the patty back and forth in your floured hands. It is usually messy.

When oil has heated gently slide tuna patty into oil. Cook till brown and flip- about 4 minutes. Cook other side till brown – about 2-3 minutes.

Place on a plate that is lined with paper towels. Do not stack on each other.

Serve with a salad and your favorite carb. We serve with egg noodles.
