How To Make Tuna Cakes Recipe

via Dave Hood, Cook’n Share

Place the potatoes into a mixing bowl followed by the milk, butter, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mash until well combined.

Add in the cheese, tuna, and onions. Using a spoon or spatula, mix until well combined.

Spread the mixture out in a 9 by 9 oven dish and smooth the top out. Place some parchment paper over the top and flatten it down. Place in the fridge for about half an hour to set.

After setting, remove the paper and find a round object about 3 or 4 inches in diameter and cut out the cakes.

For the dredging stations, add the flour to once container, the egg to a second, and the bread crumbs in the third.

Dredge the patties in each station and set them aside on a plate lined with parchment paper.

Pour some olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Fry the patties, in batches, until nicely browned on each side.

Set the patties on a wire rack to drain off any excess grease. Serve and enjoy your tasty tuna patties.
