1-5 ounce can of chunk like tuna (or whatever kind you like, with or without oil)
1/2 bag of saltine crackers
*I usually double this, but the picture above is single batch as in the recipe.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Use your hands to form into patties and fry on each side like hamburgers in a skillet. You may need to add a little oil to the skillet, especially if your can of tuna does not have oil in it. A non-stick skillet will help. I use cast iron and I'm finally getting used the different skillet...I don't burn the tuna patties most of the time now. :) The above picture is not with the cast iron skillet, because it was still full of oil from making funnel cakes.
Tuna patties usually accompany a box of Annie's All Natural Shells and Cheese and a pan of green beans with a little butter. Sometimes the kids and I make them with Shells and Tomato Juice.
This is a cheap meal and also pretty healthy. Tuna is a great way to get some omega 3s. Wyatt and I like to eat these cold, too. I like make sandwiches out of them sometimes.
