While surfing my 21 Day Fix boards I follow on Facebook, someone posted a tuna patty recipe. That got me to thinking. I LOVE tuna patties, but the recipe I always used was not going to be clean or healthy. Since I had a few cans in my pantry, I decided to make up my own for dinner tonight whith what I had on hand. They were FANTABULOUS if I do say so and simple to make up.
2 5-oz cans of tuna, in water, drained.
1 small onion, chopped (about a 1/4 cup)
1/3 cup raw old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 Tbsp. Penzey's Fines Herbes Seasoning blend
1/8 tsp. Penzey's Crushed Red Pepper
1 egg (or two egg whites)
Pink Himalayan Salt and Black Pepper to taste, optional (I used just pepper)
In medium sized bowl, combine the drained tuna, chopped onion, oatmeal, Fines Herbes Seasoning blend, crushed red pepper, and eggs until mixed well. Shape into 4 patties, season with salt and pepper and additional crushed red pepper if desired. I like spicy, so I added extra!
Cook in fry pan sprayed with a bit of non-stick cooking spray until browned on both sides and heated through.
Sprinkle lemon juice on top when serving.
Yields: 4 patties or 2 - 21 Day Fix approved Servings.
