My mother made tuna patties often and I loved them. I felt nostalgic tonight and wanted to make some. This recipe was great! The reason I gave it a 3 star isn't because it wasn't great, but because it is a quick, easy dish for a night when you want to get dinner done in a rush. I wouldn't serve it at a fancy occasion or anything, but it is a 'good, solid recipe' for a hearty meal. I paired it with peas and rolls. I tried something that wasn't in the recipe: chopped boiled egg. It was excellent! I would also recommend taking the temp down between low and med. Watch them carefully so that they don't burn.

This recipe tasted good and very easy. It's not gourmet but still delicious. Much cheaper than making crab cakes too.
