This is a contribution from Umm Asiyah featured
in the Recipe-a-Day newsletter. He recommends Albacore tuna for this dish.
2 eggs, slightly beaten (Note # 1)
6-1/2 oz. can of tuna, drained and flaked
1 small onion, finely chopped
4 slices white or wheat bread, cubed
salt to taste
Old Bay Seasoning to taste
1/4 cup Butter (Note #2)
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, blend together the eggs,
tuna, onion, bread cubes, and seasonings. Mix well.
Shape the tuna mixture into 4 to 6 patties.
Warm the butter (Note # 2) in a heavy skillet over medium heat until
bubbling. Fry the tuna cakes until golden brown on both sides.
Serve immediately. Serves 2 or 3.
Note #1: You may substitute 1
whole egg and 2 egg whites, or use 4 eggs whites instead, if cholesterol is a
concern. It will make a slight difference in flavor.
Note # 2: While butter gives a delicious
flavor, unless you don't give a hoot about cholesterol, use olive oil. With use of a
non-stick pan, you could significantly cut the amount of fat this dish calls for, too, if
low-fat is a priority.
