Crunchy Tuna Balls


  • 2 tuna cans
  • An egg
  • 1-2 slices whole grain bread, soaked in milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • Breadcrumbs


Mix the tuna with egg, and a few pieces of bread (soaked in milk). Add salt and pepper. Form little balls and cover them with breadcrumbs. Cook until they’re gold and crunchy at 360°F.

We like to serve these crunchy tuna balls with some tomato salsa - the spicier, the better!
