Prep Time:


Cooking Time:

5 mins

What you'll need:

  • 450g potato , quartered
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise 
  • 2 x 185g cans tuna , drained
  • 198g can sweetcorn , drained
  • small bunch chives , snipped, or 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 eggs , beaten
  • 100g dried breadcrumb
  • sunflower oil , for frying


  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water until really tender. Drain and pat off excess water with a paper towel. Tip into a bowl, season and mash. Stir in the mayonnaise, tuna, sweetcorn and chives or parsley. Shape into 4 cakes and chill until cold and firm.
  2. Dip each cake into the egg, then coat in the breadcrumbs. Chill for 15 mins.
  3. Heat a little of the oil in a pan and gently fry the cakes for 2-3 mins on each side until golden. You may need to do this in batches – keep warm in a low oven. Serve with extra mayonnaise and salad leaves.
