I tried these last night Kierie, and they are really good. I used about 3/4 T Old Bay, and no pepper or salt (OB has both in it already). Mine stuck to the muffin tin, even though I sprayed with cooking spray, so next time I'll use liners.
Thanks!

Do you think it would taste good without the cheese? I know somethings just need the creaminess of cheese.

I'm bad about picking up canned tuna whenever it's on sale and not using it much. sounds like this would be great way to use it up. I tend to just force myself to eat it on salad or something.

Hmmm. Interesting. A tuna pabuca, but without the bread crumb binder. Kind of like a crab crake. I may have to try this sometime.

Default Amt of tuna

Is this really 24 oz?
I decided I wanted to make this today, but all I have is a can that is 5 oz and pouches at are 2.5 and 3.5 oz.
I just wanted to check b/c 24 oz seems like a lot and I wanted to make sure I'm reading it correctly. (plus that amt might limit me if I wanted to make it with crab. $$)
Thanks!

Good question! A quick Google search yielded several similar recipes that called for 2 6-ounce cans of tuna with 2 eggs for 6 muffins. Here is one example.

Here is a simplified version that calls for 3 7-oz cans = 21 oz, which is close to the 24 oz posted above, and 3-4 eggs for 12 muffins.

It may just depend on whether you have 7-oz cans or 6-oz cans to start with.

I had forgotten about these... they stink up the kitchen when they are cooking but they are really good!

Default Thanks!

When I looked at the amt of tune in a 2.5 pouch, I can see how you would need 24 oz to make 12!
Thanks for the note about the smell- my kitchen smells like the white Chili right now- I think I'll let it air out before making something else with a strong scent!

How well would these freeze? I don't think my dd would eat these and I often need something for quick in the morning or a snack.
