How to make tuna patties

Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s recipe for tuna patties.

These tuna patties are one of my family’s all time favourite meals. Even the fussiest members of my family eat these fishcakes.

To make these tuna fishcakes is really simple. All you need to do is add the ingredients in the list together and put it in the fridge for a while.

If you don’t know what oat flour is, don’t stress. Just place regular oats into a hand blender and process it until it resembles flour.

I was making these tuna patties for a bigger crowd so if there are few of you then feel free to halve the recipe (for about 4 people). They are very yummy though so you may want leftovers and in that case you can make the whole recipe. They will also freeze well if need be.

I must say though that despite the portion of this tuna patty recipe I had none left in the fridge by the end of the next day. Between leftovers and the fact that they were also added to lunchboxes the next day this recipe was great. It really saved me the hassle of thinking of what to put into the lunchbox. Just make sure that you add a fork to the the lunchbox so that the fishcakes are easy to eat.

If you need some more tuna inspiration then look no further. This tuna pasta bake was an enormous hit and I have had some great feedback from other people. I also have this recipe for the most divine skinny tuna lasagne  which is a much “skinnier” version of the original dish.

For something a bit lighter, this avocado tuna salad from Gimme Delicious looks really tasty too – I also found this compilation of recipes from Taste of home. It’s a collection of 15 tuns recipes that look outstanding – .

I hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s recipes and I look forward to sharing lots more. See you next week, Leanne xoxo
