A very easy appetizer to serve at parties and gatherings. Served with sour cream they are terrific. The yield will depend on the size of the balls you make.

Reviewed for Make My Recipe Tag Game in the Aus/NZ Forum- Easy to make and budget firendly too. We enjoyed these today as a late lunch/afternoon snack. I used gluten-free bread and corn crumbs to make these suitable for gluten-free diet. I liked that they were healthy being mainly vege and tuna and baked in the oven. Served with a sour lite cream and seet chilli sauce combo. Photo also has been posted
