Step 1: Preparation
Now, preheat your pan. You’ll want it at the same heat you cook your eggs. Since you’re using canned tuna, the heat from the pan is there just to cook the egg, which will hold the patty to together. Mix the egg, the tuna, and your choice of hot sauce together in the bowl. When it’s ready, it’ll look like an uncooked beef burger patty.
Now put some oil on the pan. Not too much. You’ll only need enough to get the pan wet and to keep the patty from sticking to it.
Step 2: Cook the Patty
Once the pan is heated to your liking and your mix is ready, you’re all set to start cooking the patty. Scoop your tuna mix out of the bowl and put it in the frying pan. Use that spatula to press it down to form a solid and circular patty. Keep an eye on it, as it’ll cook fairly quickly. Remember that you’re only there to cook the egg, so it’ll only take as long as it usually takes for you to cook one.
Step 3: Putting it Together
Now you’ve got your healthy tuna patty and healthy bread. All you need to do is to put it together. Once both sides are cooked, you’re free to make your sandwich. These patties are fine cold, so if you like them, you can make a few and keep them in your fridge until you get hungry.
These patties don’t have to be enjoyed in a sandwich. You can chop them up and enjoy them in a salad. You can also add tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and whatever else you want. It’s a very open recipe.
