Tuna Patties

We love these tuna patties.  If you like salmon patties, you will like these as well.  This recipe is so versatile in that you can add spices you like to make it your own recipe.  They keep well for several days refrigerated and can be reheated in the oven or microwave.  The recipe could be doubled for a larger family or even tripled. We love these with ketchup or dipped in salsa or ranch dressing.  They go great with any meal and kids will love them, too.   You might also like to check out our recipe for salmon patties.
