This is a recipe that look so good. And it can be frozen. The tuna patties can be served with a tartar sauce if you prefer. ETA : i made it on September 5, 2011. This is wonderful with the marinara sauce. I used fresh tomatoes from my garden. I had only 2 can of tuna, so I added a can of salmon. But it tastes only tuna. Even my son likes these patties. And he eats them plain. No sauce.

Super easy and tasty. I served this with IngridH's White Bean Pesto Dip instead of marinara sauce and Wow, what a nice combo. I will make this again, thanks for sharing.

What a nice quick easy supper tonight. I made this with marinara sauce, and was absolutely enjoyed by us all. I did cut back a wee little bit only on the chives and breadcrumbs. This would make for an easy lunch or a quick dinner. Made for PRMR tag.
