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!! :-)

Didn't have any dill and used dried parsley. A new family favorite

Very tasty and easy. CHANGES: Tuna in oil because that is what I had. Also left out walnuts .. we don't care for them.

So good, but I used Pam instead of butter to save on calories and fats. Ate it on a wheat bun. YUM!

Loved these. The mixture will be runny so you can't really form them into patties, but this should be expected without a binder. The idea is to spoon them into the pan and slightly spread them out. They will firm up during the frying process. I had chopped pecans, so used these instead of walnuts. Only other change was to add a couple tablespoons of chopped onions. Yummy low-carb version of the tuna patties my mom used to make.

So fast and great tasting! Ingredients I have on-hand, too. I added red onion and bread crumbs (I didn't measure the mayo) while doubling the recipe for 4, and my kids asked for more. I questioned the walnuts at first, but they add nice flavor and crunch. We will make this again!!
