"I've made these for so long that I'm not sure of the recipe origin. They never fail, are easy to make & always good. They also work well & impress as a starter if served with crisp veggies, tartar sauce or a light mayo sauce thinned-with-milk & flavored with lime juice, dill & chives. Makes 4 patties of entree size or 6-8 of starter size. *Edited to Add* -- My spec thx to Chef JillAZ for reviewing this recipe for the Freezer Tag Game in the OAMC Forum & for the info she provided. Pls see Note #2 at the end of Prep Steps for this info. :-)"

"To be honest I hate tuna. I was originally making these for my 2-year-old's lunch. & I actually liked these! Not fishy at all. I used lemon juice & breadcrumbs instead of the cornflakes. I also grated the onion & added some pepper. My son scarfed these down! He loved them. This will be a go to lunch for him now! Thanks."
"Delicious! I took the advice of the other viewers and used 2 cans of tuna and 3 eggs. For the filler I used uncooked 1 minute oatmeal (I use this in my meatloaf too) and it was wonderful! I didn't have any lemons or limes on hand so I used Lemon Pepper seasoning along with dill and salt and pepper. Cooked with butter. Excellent.... definitely will make this one again!"
"These were so delicious! I love that they are easy, quick, and healthy! I doubled them and only used 3 eggs. Also, I used low salt saltine crackers for the bonding ingredient....worked wonderfully. I also used white albacore tuna in pouches (just a preference). They were moist, flavorful, and my house smelled like a seafood restaraunt while they cooked. I served them with tartar sauce, but they are also delicious with plain old ketchup or a squeeze of lemon. Thanks for this awesome recipe that I will definitely use again and again :)"
"I love how easy these are to make and they taste great too! I don't add dill but I do add a little pepper. I'd like to start spicing them up with other things too.
"Good recipe. The mixture was easy to work with and the patties stuck together well. The aroma of the lime while cooking was so good. I think I added to much corn flakes as they turned out quite dry. Next time I will reduce the corn flakes or perhaps use something else for the binding agent. I will also use only one egg. I wished that I had made a sauce, perhaps a dill sauce would be nice (my fault for not making it this time). Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"These were fairly simple to make. Without real guidance as to the amount of crushed corn flakes, I started out by adding 1/4 cup. That was not enough, so I added an additional 1/4 cup, and that seemed about right. There really is not much seasoning in this recipe, so I added some salt and black pepper, which really turned this from bland to tasty. I would suggest adding seasonings of your choice. These are also greatly helped by serving with a sauce, tartar or otherwise. I used a wasabi mayo. Made for Culinary Quest 2014."
"I'm so glad we tried these. They were so good. All that lime juice gave these such a fresh flavor. I didn't have corn flakes so I used bread crumbs and left the mixture pretty wet. They held together really well. I'm looking forward to making these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe."
"These are good although there is not a lot of flavor.
Being on a no carb diet instead of corn flakes I used plain instant oatmeal, let them set for about ten minutes and they soaked up fine. I also added some basil and Italian spices to flavor it up some more. I also used the lemon juice and it gives them a nice twist. Pretty mushy but if you scoop them with a spatula after shaping them on a board they cook up nicely."
"I just made this with Dill Sauce (http://www.food.com/recipe/dill-sauce-28068) for a 2AM snack. I used breadcrumbs instead of Corn Flakes, and I added diced sweet red pepper and jalapeno. Tuna is salty enough on its own, no need to add any. Don't make your patties too thick, or you'll be waiting forever for them to cook through!"
"I enjoyed the taste but they didn't hold together very well."
"Very good tuna patties. We loved the corn flakes for bonding. Will make again. Thanks for posting."
"The family liked these. I subbed 1 tbsp vinegar for lemon juice and used half stuffing mix half breadcrumbs. I had to cook these on med to crisp them up. Thank you for a great recipe!"
"Thanks for the nice recipe. In my patties I substitute quich oats for bread crumbs, egg white for the whole eggs and I add a tabs of tomato paste to get super moist patties.Meriem"
"Growing up my mom would make tuna patties using only egg, tuna, and crackers. Whenever I make them for myself they just don't turn out as amazing as I remember them being, but when you want them, you have to have them. We realised we didn't have any saltines, and all that my boyfriend had in fact was plain old corn flakes. We crumbled them up and followed your recipe (minus the lime juice and dill) and ate them as a side. And they were the closest I've got to how I remember eating them at home. I was worried that they wouldn't hold together and flip well, but turning up the heat on my griddle and squishing the edges with the spatula proved to work well. All in all, my boyfriend was impressed and we were no longer hungry, so I definitely rate this a success!"
"I made these last night and we enjoyed them. I loved how inexpensive this dish is and its ease of preparation. I will make these again. I didn't have any cornflakes but I used some corn chex crushed up. Thank you so much for sharing."
"I was worried about this out of the bowl. I added breadcrumbs till they stiffened up but I think I added too much. I admit, I was at the bottom of the can and wanted to use up the extra, so this is in no way a reflection of the recipe but instead of my non-adherance. Despite them looking a bit dry and being humungous (I doubled the recipe and kept the serving size), My kids and I loved them. We ate them as they were with some ketchup and broccoli salad on the side. Nom Nom Nom."
"Twissis, thank you for a great recipe for Tuna! I loved the dill and lime juice in it. Will make over and over. My family liked them in sandwiches (like a hamburger). Thanks again!"
"These were pretty good. My only change is I added two cans of drained tuna in water (8 oz total) to help offset the lime. Resulted in 5 good size patties. Served on top of a fresh salad with veggies from the garden...very good. Thanks!"
"Yummy. My daughter originallyn turned her nose up, but once she took a bite she loved it."
"Wow, I just made this and I am amazed at the outcome. Not only is this stupidly easy to make, it's healthy too! I made mine into a sandwich on an english muffin, it was delicious! Instead of dill, I threw in a little fresh cilantro into the mix, added some salt, pepper and garlic salt and cooked it up. It definitely didn't taste like canned salmon. So good! This will be a staple for sure."
