Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 12-16 patties

Ingredients: 

  • Potatoes (peeled and roughly chopped) - 1kg
  • Canned tuna (drained) - 425g tin
  • Frozen pea, corn and carrot mix (thawed) - 2 cups
  • Red onion (thinly sliced) - 1

Methods:

  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over a high heat. Boil for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl, roughly mash and allow to cool.
  2. Add tuna, vegetable mix and onion and egg to potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Use ⅓ mixture at a time to shape into patties and coat each pattie with breadcrumbs. (*See storage to freeze at this stage)
