"They turned out great! Even my anti vegetable 15 yr old loved them!"
"Will definitely make these again!"
"I am storing this recipe for this summer when zucchini is plentiful. Wondering how thiswould be with a can of crab instead of tuna for a low fat version of a crab cake."
"These were very delicious. I used 2 cans of tuna fish, drained, instead of the pouch and used panko bread crumbs. I then baked them in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes because I thought that would be a lot less messy than trying to flip them in a pan. They turned out great! Will make again!"
