Tuna or Salmon Cakes

"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.

    These were pretty good.. I used savory herb stuffing because it was all I had. I didn't really care for the lemon juice so if I were to make it again I think I would either leave it out or put in less. Thanks


<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at food.com, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!!
