Tuna Melt

Ok, this isn’t fancy or gourmet – but we made some fun tuna melts tonight on the stove.  Nava and Yaakov ate them up – of course, the chances of them eating them go dramatically up once we put ketchup on the plate…

  • 3 cans tuna
  • 1/2 can corn
  • 1/2 can black beans
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup matzo meal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/2 cup to a cup of grated cheese (depends on how much you like cheese)
  • 1/2 cup diced fine onions
  • 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes (optional – but adds some more moisture – if you don’t want to eat them with ketchup, then this is a good thing to add)

If you make this a family affair – your children can pour all the ingredients into  bowl and help mix.  I they want to do everything, then I would say skip the diced onions and tomatoes – because they can do everything else.

Mix all ingredients together.  Form patties.  Put the patties on a skillet with medium heat (I used a no stick pan – so I didn’t use oil or cooking spray – so dependingo n your pan, you might have to add a little bit of oil) and saute until browned and heated through.  I flattened the patty when I flipped the patty with the spatula.  This helps make sure the patty is cooked evenly.  Eat with ketchup, salsa, on bread or as a dish with veggies on the side.

No pictures – our camera from our United miles hasn’t come yet.  However, the patties were browned nicely and you could see the corn and beans (so that was fun), and now all the patties are gone, so even if the camera comes tomorrow, no pictures….
