    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These tuna balls are very tasty, they can be made into 10-12 larger balls, or 30-40 smaller cocktail size balls (served with a cocktail picks). If you are one of those people (like myself) that just have to add garlic to everything, no matter what it is, then fresh minced garlic in any amount may be added to these if desired. This recipe can easily be doubled, I usually do if I am making, them into larger balls, for a snack or a main meal.

    • 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can tuna, drained
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup fine dry breadcrumbs (enough to hold the balls together) or 1/4 cup soft breadcrumbs (enough to hold the balls together)

    • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, to taste
    • 1/2 cup crushed corn flakes (for coating)
    • 3 tablespoons melted butter

      These are very tasty & easy to make. I will make these again. Wish I had doubled the receipe because my Hubby made a main dish out of them & wanted more.

      Pretty good- and like nothing I've ever eaten before. I found them a little oily, but they went very fast!

      My meat-lover of a husband likes these....and that says a lot for a fish recipe. Both of us especially liked that crunchy corn flake coating. It's a keeper!
