Ultimate lazy tuna fishcakes

My daughter and I are home in the day quite often. We tend to go out together in the afternoon, to help the day go by a little quicker. As we are off to the park, running errands or visiting soft play I like us to have a nice lunch together before we go out. I typically want something that is simple, cheap and makes minimal mess. These ultimate lazy tuna fishcakes are perfect for knocking together in just a few minutes and using up a few leftovers too.

Ultimate lazy tuna fishcakes - mix the ingredients together

Combine all of the ingredients apart from the egg and breadcrumbs. Tip – if you want to make these a little bit healthier you can omit the breadcrumbs completely and add the egg to the mixture.

Make into rounds and pat them down slightly. If using the breadcrumb then dip into egg and then the breadcrumbs. Personally I made these by adding the breadcrumbs and the egg to the mixture. Then I popped them in a roasting tin.

Pop them in the oven at gas mark 5 for 22 minutes and this is the finished result.

These were crispy, tasty and so simple to make. I love that it took just a few minutes to mix these together and pop them in the oven. I only had to clean up a couple of items while they were cooking and I then had almost 20 minutes to wait. This is the perfect little lunch served alone, or with a side salad.

Alternatively, why not serve with up with some nice potatoes and vegetables as a main meal. These fishcakes are healthy, simple and have a lovely crispy taste to them.
