Made this for the Faceless Frenzy weekend 2013. First let me say that I never thought to add tuna and cream cheese. I went outside my box and found a terrific addition to my lunches! I bet this would go over big at a party on those mini bagels. Bonus points because DH really liked this too! I toasted the bagel. Read More

I made this with regular cream cheese and imported tuna. Very easy to make tastes great. The lemon zest really punches up the flavor. It might be a little too sophisticated for kids though. Read More

I had this spread on white bread with lettuce and it was pretty good. I think it would be much better on a bagel as intended. Read More

It was good. I'm not a big tuna fan so I might use chicken next time. I used cheap tuna and spread it on a toasted wheat bagel. I also ended up eating it on my potato chips! Read More

I thought this was okay. It took all of three minutes to make in the food processor so I have to give it credit for being such an easy recipe. It's nice on a bagel thin. It tastes good but not amazing. I do think there's too much cream cheese and next time I'll either use half as much cream cheese or double the tuna. Read More

This is an excellent quick recipe! Great when you need something quick and have "nothing" on hand. It was great as it was but I generally like spicy. Next time I might try a touch of cayenne pepper. I served it with larger round crackers and formed it into a cheese ball shape. Read More
