We enjoyed your Tuna Burger recipe for dinner tonight. I make them into smaller tuna cakes and served them with Mac'n'Cheese and Green Peas.

Ladies...when you don't know what will be on the dinner menu, these are wonderful to have. Tuna is a staple in my pantry and I serve them with a salad and they are delicious! Also try sprinkling them with Old Bay seasoning once they are done baking in the oven. Yum!!!
