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! This recipe is from "Savoring Cape Cod" submitted by Doris VanderWeil
