Cooking With Kids Tuna and Veg Fishcakes

This recipe is perfect for using up the weeks leftovers! We used mash and veg from a previous meal, and some stale bread for breadcrumbs. These tuna and veg fishcakes were so yummy, the monsters wanted more!! 

What you need:

Left over mashed potato (around 3 or 4 cups)
150g canned tuna
1 cup leftover veg (peas, sweetcorn and cubed carrot works well)
1 egg
2 slices of stale bread

In case you missed that, combine the potato and tuna in a bowl. Stir in the veg and then beat an egg and add it to the mix, making sure to combine completely. 

Use a food processor to make breadcrumbs from 2 slices of bread, then toast until golden under the grill.

With a spoon of mixture at a time, make a patty shape and coat in breadcrumbs. 

Heat olive oil in a frying pan andcook until each side is golden (3-5 minutes each side.)

Serve with a side of yummy baked beans.
