    These were delicious! Because I had it on hand, I replaced the celery with diced orange bell pepper and it added great flavor. I fried them in olive oil flavored Pam to cut some calories. I will definitely make these again and again. - 6/15/07

    I love these patties. They are so good on a whole wheat bun with romaine lettuce and thin slices of avocado. Fantastic! - 6/19/09

    Amazing idea to switch up everyday tuna. i used a countertop grill instead of frying, and ate it with a sweet potato. Even my younger brother liked it, a miracle! - 4/17/11

    My patties kept falling apart. Is there a trick to keeping them together? (I used 2 big cans of tuna, and perhaps the recipes calls for 2 small cans of tuna ... that might have been my problem. I'll have to try it again with small cans.) It might be better with a sauce added, as it was a bit dry - 3/21/07

    I like this . at times i add some hard boiled eggs to change what it tastes like . keep them guessing i always say . wrap it with a bun and heat for a min. in microwave . serve with chips - 2/1/12
