Potato-Corn-Tuna Patties


The kids being back to school only means that I have to likewise “activate” my “lunch lady duties”.

Knowing that their school specifically requires requests that they bring only healthy packed lunches (translation:  no chips and sugary treats, no eggs nor nuts too (in deference to those kids with food allergies)) has certainly put both my creativity and cooking skills (?) to the test more often than not.

Thank goodness that co-mommy Carrie (aka wonder twin of my fave sis-in-law – on my side of the fam 😉 ) suggested that I try this recipe she googled from one of the more popular and kid-friendly foodie sites in this part of the world.

The result?  

Definitely another winner! :mrgreen:  Also, since  it brings together the three ingredients our kids love (mashed potatoes, sweet corn and tuna flakes), this dish undoubtedly has my “mommy-stamp-of-approval”. 😀

And if, like me, you have a little girl whose portion sizes are a bit smaller than our two other growing tweens, making the patties into potato balls – and paired with the usual “fruit component” (in this case, sweet seedless watermelon wedges – yum!) – should still hit the spot.

See?

Hoping to share more lunchbox ideas soon. 🙂

    Pinks I finally did this. Masarap sya kaya lang ung iba nadurog hehehe. ginawa ko nalang balls para mas intact. cguro dapat kinapalan ko ung pati para di madali madurog. 🙂

    Yipee – congratulations! Di bale, next time, for sure di ka na “durugista” … “mambobola” na lang – hahaha! Kidding aside, I prefer doing balls since mas madali i-handle plus smaller portions pa na perfect for packed lunch ng kids.

    So, does this mean e move on na tayo to our next “lunch experiment”? 😉
