I don't stock up on canned goods because Mark is not really fond of it. You'll rarely find canned goods in my pantry, except maybe for a piece or two of canned tuna, which most of the time just stays untouched (and even gets expired). But whenever I'm too lazy to cook, a canned tuna would come in handy for a quick protein fix. I'd just pop a can or two in a pan, add in some eggs and a few spices, and Mark's meal prep is sorted.

But I guess, out of all the dishes that I cook for Mark, the tuna-egg formula is his least favorite. Which is why I thought of spicing it up a bit and making them into something that Mark would definitely enjoy.

These Tuna Oatmeal Patties have the same tuna-egg formula, but with added flavors and crunch. And I used oatmeal instead of the usual flour or cornstarch as binder. So I guess we can call this a healthy dish, too? :p

Mark loves having it with freshly cooked white rice. Goes well with plain old tomato ketchup, but I like it more with sweet chili sauce. You may also just do away with flattening them to make tuna meatballs instead.

I had them pan-fried, but baking them in an oven will also work wonders. I'm sure these patties will also taste good in a bun with some mayo, tomatoes, and lettuce; for a delicious no-meat burger. Now that I'll really have to try!
