This is a nice, different way to prepare tuna. I tried the tuna mixture before putting it in the crescent rolls and decided to throw in some powdered onion too, which worked out great. Thanks for posting!

What a GEM of a recipe! And so versatile, too, as this could easily be a snack, an appetizer, or a light lunch. But the best part is that these were so easy to make, and the recipe called for common ingredients that I always have on hand. They would make a great appetizer for just about any kind of party. Thanks, tomsawyer. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
