Gluten Free Poor Man's Krabby Patty
- 6 ounces tuna I prefer albacore
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup seasoned Gluten Free 'bread' crumbs, or your favorite GF cereal like Chex, crushed
- 1/3 cup minced onion
- 1/4 cup minced celery
- 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise Hellman's is gluten free
- 2 tablespoons chili sauce optional
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce, optional
- 1 dash Worcestershire sauce Lea & Perrins is gluten free), optional
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine tuna, egg, bread crumbs, onion, celery, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, hot chili sauce, chili sauce, dill, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well.
- Shape into 4 patties (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle, if desired can be made up a day or two in advance.
- Coat a cast iron skillet with cooking spray, oil or butter(just enough to coat not shallow frying); fry tuna patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. These are fragile, so be careful when turning them. Then I pop them into the oven for 5-10 minutes. Using a cast iron skillet makes it even easier. Serve plain or on gluten-free buns.
