Tuna patties with sour cream, parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs. Tuna patties with sour cream, parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 large can tuna in water
    1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
    2 tbsp grated parmesan & romano cheese
    1 egg
    1 tbsp light sour cream
    1 tbsp full fat sour cream***

    ***I made these last week and used low fat sour cream which made my patties kind of dry. Today, I added another TBSP of full fat sour cream (in addition to the TBSP of low fat) and they were much more moist than last time. A little extra sour cream divided by 4 ways isn't going to hurt. Next time, I will more than likely use 2 TBSP of full fat instead of the 1 TBSP of low fat.

    I've also substituted the sour cream with ricotta and greek yogurt. if the mix is too moist for your liking, add breadcrumbs. if it's too dry, add more sour cream or a substitute. I've also added diced bell peppers and onions as well. This is a great recipe to build upon.


Mix everything together and divide mixture by 4. Make into patties and place into a hot skillet with a tiny bit of oil. Cook until browned on both sides.

Makes 4 medium sized patties.

Number of Servings: 4

    Use panko (japanese bread crumbs) instead of italian bread crumbs. Less carbs and more crunch! - 8/26/10

    Although I had to substitute whole wheat bread crumbs and mozzarella since I didn't have two of the ingredients in my cupboard, these were amazing! It's definitely a new favorite of mine! (Oh, and I only used low fat sour cream as recommended in the recipe.) - 7/31/09
