MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 8, 2013

I have made these for friends as a new twist on a tuna sandwich for lunch. I usually have a salad of fruit or vegetable to go along side. Simple meal rather quick. I also use low sodium and low fat products throughout the ingredients listed and always low salt potato chips and eggbeaters for dipping. I did add some panko crumbs when low on chips for coating, works great, good crunch too.
