What I am about to share is a recipe that looks like something that would be served in a Michelin 3 star restaurant, but actually has a canned product…woahh.. what?? yes canned tuna as its main ingredient. These Tuna cakes cost so little, but taste so decadent and delicious that it’ll have your mind spinning. I came up with this recipe on a Sunday morning when I had nothing in my fridge but condiments and bread. However, I have several cans of tuna so I came up with this quick and easy recipe!
- 2 cans of tuna
- 1/3 c. panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 c. cheddar cheese
- 1 egg or flax egg (1tbsp. ground flax + 3 tbsp. water)
- 1 tbsp. garlic bread seasoning (not necessary, otherwise season with some salt, pepper, and herbs)
- For honey mustard dipping sauce: twice as much mayo than mustard, add honey to desired sweetness.
- combine all the ingredients and mix until combined.
- Form into small patties (about 6 or 7)
- light oil a baking pan and preheat oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes
- Place cakes into the oven and back for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Flip cakes halfway through baking time.
Serve up these delectable treats and pretend they cost you a lot of money! I highly recommend people to buy a bag of ground flax seed. I use it as an egg substitute all the time when baking because it is healthier, cheaper, and tastes exactly the same. It can also be stored for a very long time, versus eggs which go bad in about 2 weeks.
