This is a dish my parents used to be able to make in a half hour when we were children. I added a few additions to make it a little more exciting and fairly low in fat. Serve on hamburger buns with traditional hamburger condiments if desired.

These were pretty good. They are very plain though you definitely need to serve them with some sort of sauce. We served ours without buns and topped with dijon tartar sauce. Read More

I really enjoyed these tuna patties. Since tuna is packaged in 5 oz. cans nowadays I slightly decreased all the other ingredients except for the egg and the tomatoes. I used canned tomatoes since I didn't have any fresh ones. I cooked the patties 5 minutes longer on each side and served them with an easy remoulade sauce. Read More

I deviated from the recipe slighty but was very impressed! I used Pace diced onions with green chili's for a little more flavor. I will definitely be making these again! Read More

As a base these are great. I've seen on here that some people think these are bland - if you utilize the Rotelle Tomatoes and Chiles they are not bland. I didn't have a can so I used a can of diced Chiles a 2oz jar of diced pimentos and 1/4 tsp ground Cayenne - these are all flavors my dad and I like. Once these were finished in the pan I added a slice of cheese and some Kraft No-Fat Mayonnaise (with a little cayenne mixed in) spread onto the Sandwich Thin and it was a hearty lunch. Read More

I made this gluten free. I used 2 cans of Sprouts Fried Onions. Chopped 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion. For spices I added garlic salt sea salt Walgreens chili powder. I also added about 1 cup of finely sharp cheddar. Then I fried mine up and served them with Wishbone Ranch. It was a big hit. They tasted like crab cakes. I left out the tomatoes because I usually don't use tomatoes with any fish that I cook. It was a good base recipe. Read More
