Low Carb Recipe – Tuna Patties

So yesterday I turned a total kitchen fail into a kitchen win! I was setting out to make a tuna salad and a flax flatbread to put it in. I got the tuna out and was working on it, set the bowl aside and started the flatbread. (for that recipe check out Linda’s Low Carb Menus and Recipes)

So I melted the butter and whisked in the egg and water. Then I went to dump the mixture in the flax for the bread. Unfortunately I ended up dumping it into the tuna!!!

I almost flipped the hell out! I wanted to throw things around, scream and cry. THen I thought, “Hey, egg, butter, add a little of the flax and some Parmesan and fry that ish up!!!”

So I did.

The patties came out wonderfully! I am so excited and these will be in my rotation now.
