Foodbuzz Family Bites: Tuna Patty with Broiled Mayo Topping and Glazed Carrots

Tuna Patty with Broiled Mayo Topping and Glazed Carrots

I believe this was either the last dinner recipe created for Family Bites, with the help of my mom because I was at a loss. Using a variation of a salmon patty recipe, we decided to replace the salmon with tuna fish (basically coming up with a different way to use tuna outside of the traditional sandwich way) and adjust the flavorings other ingredients to suit our preference.

Using Newman's Own Oil & Vinegar dressing, she also thought that a broiled topping would add a unique twist to the patties. Whipping egg whites and adding mayonnaise, yogurt, the dressing, and lemon pepper seasoning, you then dollop the mixture on top of the cooked patties and broil until browned.

There's also a simple side dish of glazed carrots, also using the oil and vinegar dressing, as well as honey, salt, and pepper.

Tuna Patties with Broiled Topping and Glazed Carrots
Recipe by Christina Provo

These moist, flavorful tuna patties are topped with a special broiled egg white-mayonnaise topping. Served with glazed carrots on the side.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4-8 servings

Ingredients -

Glazed carrots:

4 cups carrots, diced
3 tablespoons Newman's Own Oil & Vinegar dressing
3 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

Tuna burgers:

4 can tuna, drained
1 1/4 cup bread crumbs, plus 1/4 cup
1/4 cup cornmeal, plus 1/4 cup
4 large eggs
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons jarred ground horseradish
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning (with salt)
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Broiled topping:

2 egg whites, reserve egg yolks
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup yogurt
2 tablespoons Newman's Own Oil & Vinegar dressing
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning (with salt)

Directions -
  1. Heat oil and vinegar dressing over medium heat and add carrots, black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt.. Cook until tender, tossing occasionally. Add honey and cook for 3 minutes, or until liquid has slightly thickened. Check for seasonings.

  2. In large bowl, combine tuna, 1 1/4 cup bread crumbs and 1/4 cup cornmeal, eggs, mustard, horseradish, seasonings, and onion and parsley. Add reserved egg yolks from egg white topping if mixture is too dry. Shape into 8 patties. Mix remaining bread crumbs and cornmeal together and coat patties. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in skillet on medium. Fry patties until golden, about 3-4 minutes on each side, adding additional oil as needed. When cooked, place patties on rimmed baking sheet.

  3. While patties cook, mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, oil and vinegar dressing, and seasoning. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form and fold in mayo mixture. After patties have cooked, dollop with egg white mixture and broil on medium high until golden. Serve patties with carrots.



  1. Do the cooked patties have a firm enough texture so that they can be placed on a bun or english muffin? It seems like that would make a good sandwich.

  2. You created even more unique recipes than I did I think. Great job :)
