Parmesan Tuna Patties (low fat, low carb)

Submitted by: IMSHERRY7
Parmesan Tuna Patties (low fat, low carb)

Introduction

These are fast and tasty. If desired, top with a bit of marinara, mustard, etc. This makes 4 small patties, so I usually double the recipe for my family. These are fast and tasty.

    I found this recipe last week and have made it twice - my husband and I love them - I nixed the flax seed, added 1 tbsp parsley and 1 tbsp chopped green onions. I also baked them instead of frying for 10 mins at 350 degrees....so good, so cheap, I will be making these again and again. - 3/5/12

    The thought of cooking a tuna patty made with mayonaise was a strange thought to me but I was attracted by the nutrional info and so gave it a try. Baked it rather than fried it, used egg substitute and nonfat cheese and it was quite tasty! Thank you! - 5/18/09

    I'm glad you liked them. :) I never thought about baking them. What temperature, and how long?

    WOW!! this is so good. This is so quick to make. I did not have flaxmeal so I left it out and it still turned out wonderful. I didn't fry in oil; I just grilled on my non-stick griddle which I use for everything. 2 patties will fill you up. Perfect on a bed of lettuce with some vinigarette. - 2/21/10

    I made these and added onion, celery and black pepper. Also used egg substitute.Instead of mayo I used 1/2 Tbsp. Miracle Whip Light and 1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard. So yummy and healthy. I'm going to try it with canned salmon next time. - 3/26/09

    The thing I like the best about these is the texture. When I was mixing them I was worried they might be runny but once they'd cooked on each side I was pleasantly surprised how they firmed up! The flavor was little bland compared to how I usually cook but that is easily fixed. Great base recipe! - 4/13/09

    Just made this for my dad as a light meal while he's painting. He didn't want to eat it so quickly, but his brushes were drying. :) I added Ground Mustard, used ground cheese, added some Cayene Pepper, regular pepper, very thinly diced green pepper, and subbed the flaxmeal with oat bran. Very good! - 6/1/10

    I thought this was delicious! I don't have flax meal, so I used 2 Tbls of Panko bread crumbs, but I'm still considering it a low-carb meal. I also left out the salt and added some creole seasoning to give it a little kick. It's a nice change of pace for canned tuna! - 7/25/12

    Didn't have the flax so used a little almond flour instead. Yummy! I used cooking spray and they stuck to my non-stick pan so next time I will use the oil. Will definately make this again. A nice switch from my "tuna mixed w/may" normal lunch on Atkins! :) - 8/10/11

    I like these. I added mustard to the mix and made two big patties instead of 4 small. Just cook a little longer to make sure the egg gets cooked. Fits nicely on a sandwhich thin. - 6/4/10

    Tuna is a pantry staple mainly for lunch, but I love the idea of making this for dinner. I love the idea of adding the onion and baking ans a way to reduce the caolories. It is going in my cookbook! - 1/27/10

    I am enjoying these as I write! They are fantastic! The only difference I did was not use the mayo, I was out! So I added in an extra egg white. I also like spicier food, so I had a heavier hand on the onion and garlic powders. Next time, I'm going to try using fresh and baking them! - 7/11/09
