Tuna Patties

Some may have never heard of this, but have heard of Salmon patties. It is basically the same principle.  When I make these I either fry them or bake them in a muffin pan.


  • 1 Family Size package of Starkist™ Tuna or whatever brand you prefer
  • 1 egg
  • onion flakes (a few shakes)
  • 6-8 Saltine crackers finely crushed into a powder
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • about a 1/4 cup oil or cooking spray

If you do not have saltine crackers you can use more cornmeal. Mix together. Form into small patties (should get about 6 or 7).  If frying, heat oil over medium to medium low heat, place patties in pan and fry, turning when golden until done, about 10 minutes.  If you prefer to bake these, preheat over to 350°,  spray a muffin pan with cooking spray, fill wells with tuna, and bake 20-25 minutes until done.

Note: I had never used the crackers in my patties before until I made them last week. I really liked the texture the crushed crackers gave it. I also like using the foil packaged tuna over can because there is no water to drain. That helps the patties form easier and keep their shape.

My son, the picky eater, ate four and would have ate more if he could have. We had this with fresh green beans out of the garden and cream style corn.
