“I love this recipe because it is simple and packed with flavor. My sister when we were much younger had decided to stop eating meat, and so my mother and I had to create some new dishes for her to eat... we came up with this. It also works with canned Salmon...enjoy!!!”
6 patties

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (6 ounce) cans solid white tuna, flaked
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese (whatever your preference)
  • 12 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 medium onion, dices small
  • 13 cup seasoned dry bread crumb, for the mix
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs, on the side for coating
  • Pam cooking spray, for coating the pan


  1. In a medium bowl mix all ingredients together thoroughly. I noticed it is a better consistency if you mix with your hands.
  2. Place the extra breadcrumbs for coating on a shallow dish.
  3. Preheat pan on medium with Pam.
  4. Form a patty with your hands and coat both sides of it with breadcrumbs.
  5. Place the patty in a preheated fry pan.
  6. Repeat steps until mix is finished, usually around 6 patties.
  7. Cook until each side has browned and has a slight crispiness.
  8. I like to serve them on toasted bread with mayo, lettuce, and tomato if you like.
