From: Cooking during Stolen Moments
2 cans tuna, well drained
1/2 small onion, minced
2 stalks celery, minced
1 c. bread crumbs, divided (we used saltine crackers)
1 t. paprika
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
1. In a large bowl, combine the tuna, onion, celery, 1/3 c. bread crumbs, eggs and seasonings. Stir until fully combined.
2. Pour remaining 2/3 c. bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Pat about a tablespoon worth of tuna mixture into a round patty. Cover both sides with bread crumbs.
3. Pour enough oil into a skillet to cover the bottom. Heat over medium heat. Add the breaded patties and cook until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Our favorite dip to serve with these Tuna Croquettes is a simple sauce of mayonnaise and mustard. Use about 1 tablespoon of mustard for each 1/4 cup of mayonnaise. So simple but so good, and it is perfect with the tuna!
Also, this mixture tastes great formed into larger patties, fried as described above and served on a bun as a tuna burger.
We tried this for lunch today. It was VERY good. All the kids ate it!
