In a rush to get to work, and with nothing appealing for breakfast or lunch on hand other than cans of tuna, I took a chance and threw this together in 15 minutes flat.
I used to LOVE tuna patties when I was a kid. These came out tasting just like I remember even though I didn't use a bunch of smashed-up, buttery Ritz crackers.
I ate them plain, but I'm sure they would be great with sour cream or salsa, or whatever LC topper you can come up with. As a kid I ate them with ketchup. These would also be great with a bit of diced celery or onion mixed in.
Oct's LC Tuna Patties
- 1 single serving can of tuna
- 1 egg
- a dash of Mrs. Dash onion
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- one crumbled up extra dry carbquik biscuit (see recipe below)
- variations (add in diced celery or diced onion to taste ... count the extra carbs)
Mix all that up well with a fork. Spray skillet so this won't stick. Use a couple of sandwich bags to keep your hands from getting gunky and form the mix into two patties. Brown on one side, flip, brown the other side until it's no longer mushy when you press it down. Plate and eat. Also great topped with sour cream or salsa.
Makes 2 patties approx 2 carbs each.
(0 for tuna, .6 for egg, 1.25 for cheddar, .25 for Mrs. Dash, 2g for biscuit)
Oct's LC Extra Dry Carbquik Biscuits (great for bread crumbs)
* Pre-heat oven to 475 *
- 1 stick butter - melted
- 2 cups of Carbquik
- 2 TBSP sugar free Davinci French Vanilla Syrup
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
Mix all that up well, add a little more carbquik if too runny or a little water if too firm ... it should be a sticky but not runny consistency. Form into 8 mounds about 3/4 inch high, semi flat, but not pancake flat. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool. They should be very crumbly in texture.
Makes 8 biscuits less than 2 carbs each.
(0 for butter, 12 for Carbquik, 0 for syrup, 1.5 for heavy cream)
