Tuna Cakes: Don't Knock 'Em Until You Try 'Em!

I'll admit it - something about the two words "tuna cake," just doesn't sound that appealing. But if you can get past the name, you should definitely try these yummy discs of deliciousness! These are quick, easy, and really tasty (and chances are, you have most if not all ingredients already on hand). Eric and I both love these tuna cakes, and tonight was actually the first night I've made them since Wells has been born...he definitely ate almost an entire tuna cake himself - what a piggy.

3  (5oz) cans of Albacore tuna, drained
1/2 Tbsp cajun seasoning (I use Old Bay)
2 eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use Panko)
1&1/2 tsp salt
1&1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder

- Mix all ingredients in medium bowl until combined well. 
- Form into 3-inch patties.
- Heat skillet on medium (if not using a non-stick pan, spray cooking spray in pan to prevent sticking).
- Cook patties over medium heat. Flip patties over to ensure even cooking on both sides. When browned and cooked all the way through, remove patties from pan and put aside to keep warm while cooking the next batch,
- Serve warm. I always make a dipping sauce to go with them. (If you want a no-hassle dipping sauce, whip up an easy tarter sauce of mayo, chopped dill pickles, and lemon juice.)
- Enjoy!
*This recipe will make pproximately 8-10 tuna cakes.
