Tuna Patties

For those tuna lovers, here is a new way to enjoy this fish!

Tuna Patties

3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" chunks
Tuna Patties
6 Tablespoons butter, divided
3 Tablespoons milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 Tablespoon chives
1 teaspoon parsley
2 5-oz. cans tuna, drained
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Cover the potatoes with cold water.  Bring to a boil.  Turn heat down to medium and cook till tender.  Drain; add 3 tablespoons butter and milk.  Mash; add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until cold (this makes it easier to form patty).

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large frying pan.  Add onion and celery and cook till tender. Stir in seasoned salt, pepper, chives, parsley and tuna.  Remove from heat.  Stir in potatoes.

In a large frying pan, melt remaining tablespoon butter and add olive oil.  Meanwhile, add egg to shallow bowl.  To another shallow bowl add flour, paprika and basil; mix.  To a third shallow bowl add bread crumbs.  Form small patties with potato mixture.  Gently dredge patty in egg, then flour, then bread crumbs.  Place in pan.  Repeat with potato mixture. Over medium heat, cook patties 3 to 4 minutes per side, just enough to crisp them.  Allow space between patties so you can flip them.  Clean pan between batches so they will not have burnt breading on them from previous batch.

Servings:  6 - 8 patties
