"A fun way to make canned tuna taste less like canned tuna. These thin tuna patties are tasty enough to be eaten plain or in a pita pocket with lettuce and tomato."

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the tuna, egg and oats until blended. Mix in the barbeque sauce, green onion, hot pepper sauce, savory, and salt.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the tuna mixture into the pan, and flatten slightly. Smaller patties hold together better. Cook until browned on each side, about 3 minutes per side.

I was a bit surprised that BBQ sauce and oatmeal would work with tuna... but I have made these a few times now for my family, and they are always a hit. I've found that using a slightly sweet, ...

Hubby loved these. I divided the mixture into four parts, and the patties stayed together nicely. Don't try to form patties before you put them in the pan, just spoon & pat like the directions s...

Great keeper recipe! I made these exactly as the recipe says and they turned out wonderful, even to my picky family. The only thing I didn't do was add the savory because I forgot to do so. I do...

This is an odd recipe. I like the flavor of barbeque sauce and I like the flavor of canned tuna. Together it doesn't work: it's way over the top barbeque sauce flavor, and I even cut it back to ...

I really liked this recipe! I made a few changes, and it turned out great! Instead of using plain "canned" tuna, I used a "hickory smoked" variety from a "pouch". Then, I sprinkled a little le...

These are tasty little things, the recipe isn't for a crowd wich is ok with me since it is only my husband and I who will eat them, but they are easy, simple, cheap ( a word I love) and very goo...
