Nan's fish patties

My Nan taught me this recipe when I was about 21. I used to forget how to make it and would call her asking for it over and over. It's quick and easy and fills us up nicely. The ingredients don't need much measuring, and you can add anything to it for a different taste. I haven't tried it with chicken, but that could easily be used instead of tuna.

Ingredients
1 Egg (2 if you don't think one will suffice)
1-2 large cans tuna
Pinch of flour
Pinch of salt
2-4 large potatoes, mashed

Preparation

  1. Mix all ingredients by hand (or in a food processor on low if you want a smother texture)
  2. Scoop about three tablespoons of mixture out and coat lightly with flour. Press into a patty shape. You can also spread the mixture out a little to make a pancake-like patty.
  3. Fry in frying pan until outside is brown. Serve with extra mashed potato or by itself. Add salt to taste.
