Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (7 ounce) can tuna in oil, drained
  • 1 lb potato, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 slices streaky bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 ounces frozen sweetcorn
  • all purpose flour, for dusting
  • sunflower oil, for frying
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water for 7-10 minutes or until tender. Drain them and mash, season and leave to cool.
  2. While you cook the potatoes, heat a frying pan, add the bacon and cook over a medium heat for 2 or 3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and continue to cook until the onion is soft and golden the bacon is just crisping.
  4. Add the sweetcorn, stir over the heat for a couple of minutes then leave it to cool.
  5. In a bowl, mix the cooled mash and bacon mixtures together, then carefully add the tuna.
  6. Season to taste, then shape the mixture into 4 patties, flatten so that they are no more than 1 1/2in thick. Cover and chill until required.
  7. Lightly dust your patties with flour and pan-fry in a little sunflower oil for 3 or 4 minutes.
  8. Don’t turn them too often as they can fall to bits - they are still yummy even if they do though!
