Tuna Cakes ~ Flavors of Cape Cod

Carol Junkins


Inexpensive and easy to make ! Always liked these for a busy day with not much in the house to make for dinner with beans and baked fries ~ Also you don't need to buy the all white tuna which is more expensive the darker tuna just adds more flavor to them. Enjoy!
