An easy to make Kraft tuna cake recipe. We served these tasty patties on toasted kaiser rolls with sliced tomatoes and lettuce. As suggested by reviewer, chill in refrigerator before frying (optional). You could also dip the patties in breadcrumbs just before frying too. Also good with a side of creamed corn or creamed peas and french fries. You can make these fish cakes with red sockeye salmon too.

I have made both versions of this & prefer the tuna. I used cornbread flavor stuffing mix, swiss cheese and let the mixture sit in the frig overnight. Quick & easy. Thanks so much for sharing this one.

Made as posted, I put the stuffing mix through the food processor to finely grind and did not use the seasoning packet. These are just like mom used to make. Served with Grandma's Macaroni and Cheese #161294 this made a very nostalgic meal for me. True comfort food. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag. Thanks Burnice for posting a keeper!
