These are so delicious and the best part is that they are made with ingredients you probably already have on hand! I recently found Wild Planet Tuna at Costco and could not believe my eyes. I paid less than $3 per can. At the local grocer I was buying it only when it was on sale because it cost $6 a can! This tuna is so delicious. It is wild caught and not packed in anything- the can is just all meat!
We ate our patties with homemade guacamole- what is not even better with avocado!
