“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.”

Directions

  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.

Cool recipe. I used what I had on hand so no green onion, hot sauce or savory- instead chopped yellow onion, garlic, and thyme. An extra egg white helped the cakes stick together perfectly. This recipe is very variable, cheap, and easy to make.

This sounded really weird when I read the recipe, but I was desperate for something to do with canned tuna besides a tuna noodle casserole. I thought it was decent, and I would have given it four stars. I added the extra star because my extremely picky ten-year-old daughter said it was great, and she NEVER says that about anything. The first time I made it I didn't have any barbecue sauce, so I made a mix of catsup, brown sugar, vinegar, spices and seasonings, and it was even good that way.

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, Kansas City-style BBQ sauce provides better flavor with the tuna than a Texas-style, spicy BBQ sauce--at least in my family's opinion. Don't be tempted to flip them before they are nicely browned on the first side, or else they're more likely to fall apart. Even if they do fall apart, though, they're still tasty, and I like to sprinkle the broken bits over fresh salad greens for a nice, light lunch.
