Tuna Fish Patties

Rated as 4.29 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great recipe I came up with to get rid of leftover bread. I generally use the contents of my vegetable drawer here so I kind of throw in whatever I have at the time, so you can use your own judgment. They taste really nice when eaten with sour cream or low-fat mayo or even on their own - though my husband prefers ketchup. I generally use this recipe as a guideline, so have fun with it!"

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Soak bread in water in a large shallow dish until softened completely; remove from dish and squeeze as much water from bread as possible.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, spinach, and garlic in the hot oil until the onion softens, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the onion mixture with softened bread, tuna, mushrooms, zucchini, celery, eggs, dill, salt, pepper, basil, and oregano in a large bowl until combined. Form the mixture into about 24 thin, palm-size patties.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the patties in the skillet until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have pre-sliced bread from the store, that can be used as well; you just have to use more of it, so probably about 5 or 6 slices.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Yum! It did not have a strong tuna taste to it. I used what veggies I had in my refrig. (mushrooms, green peppers, celery and onions). Only suggestion is to add what and when to add bread. Alm...

These were absolutely delicious! I forgot to add the basil and didn't have any spinach or mushrooms or zucchini to add, so they probably would have been even better. I added in the bread when ...

This is a really good foundational dish. I have tons of tuna, and I am glad I found a way to use it all. As with all recipes, I tweeked the recipe a bit and personalized the ingredients I used. ...

kids hate veggies? puree them and hide them in the mixture! keep an eye on the moisture content though as it can fall apart if too moist

I was skeptical, but wanted to try this, as it seemed like a great way to save money. I was surprised, I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of the size of the patties, made mine the ...

What a great way to use leftover veggies in the fridge! I sauted some fresh kale with the garlic and onions. If I had had fresh mushrooms, I probably would have sauted those in advance as well. ...

My wife and I loved this recipe! It was very easy to make, as mentioned by other reviewers. The minor adjustments I would make next time is to add an additional slice of bread (I used pre-sliced...
