"This is a meal on a bun. My Mother used to make this for us when time was limited or when meat wasn't allowed. You can serve it alone with rice and vegetables or on a bun with tomato and lettuce. Delicious and filling."

  1. Mix drained tuna, onion, celery, egg, bread crumbs, bread cubes, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. If mixture is too dry to hold together, stir in reserved tuna juice, 1 teaspoon at a time. Divide mixture in fourths and shape each portion into a patty.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and pan-fry the patties until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Drain patties on paper towels.
