      Quick and easy to make. They were delicious, and my hubby went for thirds.

      These turned out pretty good. Super fast to put together. They didn't seem to want to firm up, so I put the lid on the pan and tuned the heat down and they firmed up fine. We trying to eat more tuna so I think we'll use this as a base recipe for tuna burgers. Thanks for posing the recipe.

      This recipe is great! We're having a heat wave here in the Pacific Northwest and I was looking for something easy and quick to make for dinner. This did the trick. I made it as written other than using Lite Miracle Whip instead of Mayo (hubby's preference) and added just a touch of olive oil to the butter in the pan while frying. Served it was a cold green salad dressed with olive oil and balsalmic vinegar. May add a dash of hot sauce next time, and there will be a next time. I'm planning on serving this next week when out of town company is here. Thanks for sharing!
