Crabby Patties

Submitted by: ROMANIAGIRL

Introduction

These are tuna patties, but since my kids claim to hate tuna but love SpongeBob, I have always called them Crabby Patties. They never questioned what was in them once I called them Crabby Patties. They ate them up and were none the wiser! In fact, I only just told them last year that it was tuna. By then, they loved them too much to complain. My son has enjoyed them since age four...he's 13 now. These are tuna patties, but since my kids claim to hate tuna but love SpongeBob, I have always called them Crabby Patties.

Ingredients

    (5) 6-oz cans of tuna in water, drained
    1/4 c Eggbeaters -OR- 1 whole egg
    1/3 to 1/2 c mayo, fat free (this affects the moisture of the patty, so measure is to personal preference)
    2 1/2 Tbsp yellow mustard (or creole, which completely changes the taste of the patty)
    2 tsp celery seed (I often use more just because we like it)
    1/4 diced onion
    appx 2/3 c plain bread crumbs (again, quantity affects moisture so adjust as preferred)
    1 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp white pepper (optional)

    I also use about 1/3 to 1/2 c olive oil for frying, depending on pan size. It should do more than just coat the bottom, or the patties will stick!

Directions

Fry patties 10-15 minutes over med-high heat, flipping about halfway through cook time.
Drain on paper towels

Depending on your patty size, this should render 8-10 servings (1 patty)

Number of Servings: 8
