2. In a medium bowl, mxs together the tuna, mustard, torn bread, lemon zest, lemon juice, water, parsley, chives, and hot sauce. Sprinkle on salt and pepper. Taste the mixture before adding the egg to see if it needs more seasoning to your taste. Mix in the egg.
3. Divide the mixtre into 4 parts. With each part, form into a ball and then flatten into a patty. Place onto wax paper lined tray and chill for an hour. (You can skip thie shilline if you want, chilling just helps the pattied stay together while you cook them.)
