What a lovely tuna pattie recipe this is! I have made it several times. The first time I made as written..delicious! The second time I added a smidgeon of curry powder...delicious! And the third time I kept the curry powder and added about a tablespoon of finely chopped onion...delicious! Great as written, this is a recipe you can make your own. Thank you so much for posting it, Wendy. Loved it. : )



I don't normally like tuna patties but these were incredible!! I didn't have celery or walnuts so I left those out and I also put pepperjack cheese on top. So good! Will make again!



I omitted the walnuts only because I don't care for them but otherwise followed the rest of the recipe as written ... It's a keeper!! :-)
