Tuna Patties

"My family likes anything involving stuffing mix, so these tuna burgers are a popular request," relates Sonya Sherrill. The Sioux City, Iowa cook needs only minutes to form the moist patties, brown them in a skillet and mix up the swift sauce she serves on the side.

    This recipe was great! My kids loved it! My 5 year old daughter even asked to take leftover tuna patties in her lunchbox for school!

    Yummy! I will definitely make this again. It was fast and easy to make and there was no fishy canned food taste at all. The cream of mushroom soup pairs nicely with the tuna. I am going to try this recipe next time with some garlic, worcestshire sauce and frozen peas. Lots of potential for variations with this recipe.

    My husband is a very picky eater, and really dislikes meals made from food in cans... However, I made this recipe and he loved it and it made my night easy. Easy recipe to make and I can't wait to cook it again.

    I wasn't blown away, but I am going to tweek the recipe and see if I can jazz it up a bit. I used cream of mushroom with roasted garlic and an herb stuffing. I think I'll add minced onion and some mayo and ketchup or chili sauce in the next go around...not giving up! This has serious potential...and my two year old ate it all!

    It didn't taste too "fishy" so the kids loved it. There was enough sause left over that I put it over rice to serve along with it.
