3 tablespoons barbeque sauce

1 egg

1 (5 ounce) can light tuna in water, drained

1 pinch salt

3 tablespoons chopped green onion

½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste

? cup quick-cooking oats

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

½ teaspoon dried savory


In a medium bowl, stir together the tuna, egg and oats until blended. Mix in the barbeque sauce, green onion, hot pepper sauce, savory, and salt.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the tuna mixture into the pan, and flatten slightly. Smaller patties hold together better. Cook until browned on each side, about 3 minutes per side.
