Homestyle Tuna Croquettes


What You'll Need:

1 (12-ounce) can tuna, drained, flaked
1 1/2 cups prepared mashed potatoes
1/2 cup frozen baby peas, thawed
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 cup plain bread crumbs, divided
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil



What To Do:

In a large bowl, combine tuna, mashed potatoes, peas, onion, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, the mustard, egg, salt, and pepper; mix well. Shape mixture into 6 round patties.
Place remaining bread crumbs in a shallow dish; coat each patty completely.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Cook patties 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve immediately, or make ahead and rewarm in a low oven just before serving.


To make our Lemon Dill Sauce which goes perfectly with these croquettes, in a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup sour cream, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
