Tasty Tuna Cakes

Brett and I love seafood, but our budget doesn't really allow for fresh seafood!  So when I came across this recipe on Kraft Foods I had to try it.  And we love it!  I'm just trying to find a great recipe for a sauce now.
Tuna Cakes

2 cans tuna , drained and flaked
1 package Stove Top Stuffing Mix 
1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
3/4 cup  water
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. Sweet Pickle Relish
1.  Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for 10-20 minutes.

2. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. 

3. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out mixture in balls about the size of a lemon.
 4. Fill skillet with scooped out mixture and flatten each one with spatula. 
5. Cook for 3-4 minutes (or until brown) and flip over.   Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

6. Depending on the size you make, it makes at least a dozen, even more.  I store the finished tuna cakes in the microwave until they're all done to keep them warm.
All done!
(I may have been doing something else and left them on a little too long, but I promise, still tasty!)  The best part is, they only cost a couple bucks to make!

  1. These were very good! I made holidaise(sp?) sauce to go with them and it was a delicious dinner! The sauce is a packet mix in the spice isle-very easy to make!
