Old Fashioned Tuna Patties by Anna

Anna’s Recipe Converted to Thermomix

Tuna is my absolute favorite, and when it comes to tuna dishes, Tuna Patties take the crown. I mean, who wouldn’t love them? They bring together the goodness of tuna and mashed potatoes, which, in my opinion, is a winning combination!

I’ve been a fan of Anna Van Dyken’s tuna patties ever since I first tried them. But, as anyone who knows me can attest, when it comes to convenience, it has to be Thermomix all the way. So, I took the liberty (she always knows of course) of converting her recipe to a Thermomix version for a quick and effortless meal.
