6 minute dinner

I made my “5 dinners” yesterday so this one only took 6 minutes to make!

Tuna Cakes

24 oz canned tuna, drained
2 eggs
4 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 C. mayonnaise
1 C. panko bread crumbs
1 t lemon juice

Mix all ingredients well.
Pour 1/4 C. panko crumbs on paper plate.
Scoop tuna mixture with ice cream scooper for equal portions and flatten on panko crumbs.  Turn to coat other side.

Store in container with lid using wax paper between layers.

To cook:
Heat 2 T canola oil in skillet on med/high heat.  Cook 3 minutes then flip and cook 2-3 more minutes.

Lemon dill sauce:  1/4 C. chicken broth, juice of 1 small lemon & 1/2 t dill.  Warm in microwave 1 minute.
Microwave your favorite steamers vegetables while tuna cakes are cooking.  We picked boring corn and peas because I know for sure the kids will eat them. :)  There is dinner in 6 minutes.  That is faster than most drive thru dinners!

BTW- my non fish eater ate 2 of them!!

    I just made your trial menu for the week. It took me over an hour, but I'm a little slow in the kitchen. If you'd like to read what I have to say about it, check out my blog, Scattering Agates. I even left a link for my readers to your site. I discovered your blog through another blog as well (Conversion Diary). We'll see how this week goes and I might just be one of your customers soon. :) I do really like the idea of it and the fact that you will do all the work of planning…
