Super Simple Tuna Cakes

photoWhat 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.
  1. combine all the ingredients and mix until combined.
  2. Form into small patties (about 6 or 7)
  3. light oil a baking pan and preheat oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes
  4. 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.
