Here is one of my husband's favorites! Growing up my mom would often make us "tortitas de atun"
or tuna-potato cakes. She makes them from scratch and they are good but to be honest
I don't really like them but tons of people do and my husband is one of them.
So I found and easy peasy way to make them (as I do with almost all my recipes)
and they are packed with a bunch of flavor!
I actually like these better than the ones my mom makes shhh!!
So here is what you need to make them:
* Potato Pancake Mix
(you can find this in the Kosher section of your grocery store same brand as Matzos)
*3 cans of tuna
(yeah I know I only took a picture of 2 but you need 3)
(I used olive oil)
Follow the instructions on the potato pancake mix box and once your mix has thickened
add your tuna:
Add enough oil to cover pan and when oil is hot, spoon some of your mixture to form patties:
They don't have to be perfect (obviously mine aren't)
When your patties are nice and brown on both sides put them on
a plate lined with paper towels:
Serve with rice or beans or a salad and you've got dinner:
Quick, easy and cheap! Oh and they are delicious! No need to add salt, pepper or any
other spice the box has a bunch of great tasting spices that will flavor your patties :)
I usually make this recipe on days I don't feel like cooking because
they are so easy to make and don't require much so I usually have
a box of the mix in my pantry for those "don't feel like cooking" days
which are more often than the "I feel like rachel ray, let's get cookin'" days.
Let me know if you try these! I would love to see pictures of your patties!
