Tuna Patties

Tuna patties!

All you’ve got to try to to is say these 2 words and I’m flooded with childhood reminiscences. we tend to youngsters ar solely a number of feet high, have little feet, scabbed knees, and infinite energy.

In between chasing one another round the feeding space table we tend to ar squeaky to our mother, “We’re having tuna patties!”

We were dependent on food, to mention the smallest amount. And continually hungry.

Back then, this was one in all my mother’s go-to dishes. No plan what her direction was, and it’s been farewell since she’s created them, it’s long forgotten.

This direction is as shut as I will return to what I bear in mind, in all probability with a number of value-added prospers.

Whàt I love àbout the recipe is thàt I àlmost àlwàys hàve the necessàry ingredients in the pàntry ànd fridge, the pàtties àre incredibly eàsy ànd quick to màke, ànd they’re budget friendly too. Oh yes, ànd they tàste greàt! (àt leàst to us. Big fàns of cànned tunà here.)
