Aren't they fabulous?? I used Albacore tuna, and they actually reminded me of crab cakes. Also, I didn't have Chipotle chili powder for the sauce so I used regular chili powder, and it was excellent!!! Thanks for reminding me how great they will be during lent!!

Help!

I would love to try these but dairy is a staller for me. Any way to replace the cheese?

Thanks,

After reading this post this morning, I made these with albacore tuna for lunch. Thank you Linda Sue! Normally, I would have bypassed these, thinking they would taste like a quiche (I'm not a big egg fan), but these do not! My husband and I ate the entire batch of 12 with Linda Sue's tartar sauce. Mmm!! *▄*

Oh - a question please Linda Sue. Suzanne's site is down right now, but what are your feelings of my posting this recipe on her site once it's back up and running (giving you full credit ofcourse, and I can attach the web address, etc)? Please feel free to let me know if you'd rather I didn't - I'm happy to go by whatever you say. Thanks!!

SSin-Deb, I don't mind you posting the recipe. I got it from somewhere online and tweaked it, so I can't take full credit anyway.

Are these reminiscent of salmon croquettes? I don't mind hot tuna, but have never been a big fan of salmon. My DH likes it, though. The comment above of them reminding someone of crab cakes is appealing!

Thanks,
Sheryl

I've never eaten salmon croquettes, so I couldn't say, but I don't see why you couldn't use canned crab meat instead of tuna. One thing I like about the recipe is that it's so cheap to make. I buy cans of tuna at about 3/$1.00 on sale. Every time I try to plan to make something using crabmeat, I chicken out after I faint at the price. I've even had the can in my hand, but put it back on the shelf. I can't justify spending that much money on such a tiny bit of food when I can buy so many other cheaper things.

Now there's an idea, jenburris. That sounds really nice. That might be good with crab ones too.

LindaSue...can you, or have you ever, frozen these? I'd like to make up a bunch, and then keep them on hand in freezer if that's possible? Going to make some today...they sound so good. I love tuna and salmon...will try it both ways.

Thanks for posting this about LindaSue's recipe Laurenaddict! I had forgotten about hearing great things about it.

We are having another one of our Appetizer Parties tonite, so I will make these in a Mini Muffin pan. Our friends who are coming tonite are also LC'ing (South Beach) and like spicy food, so I will use LindaSue's Chipotle Mayo recipe for topping.

Hi LindaSue,

I was looking to see if you replied to BeadingDiva. What do you think about this question? Any ideas?

No, I have never frozen the tuna muffins, but yes, I think they would freeze just fine. I've never had any extra to freeze. My husband takes them to work for his lunches.

MountainGirl, I'm not sure if they would come out right without the cheese. I think it helps bind them together. Just egg and tuna doesn't sound too appealing to me either, but hey, it's cheap enough that you could try it and see what happens. Considering that each muffin only has 1 net carb, I think that the amount of cheese per serving would be quite low. You might even try using half the cheese called for. I usually only eat 1 or 2 of these at a sitting and my husband only eats 2-3 at most. They are pretty filling.

I am going to try these today using almond cheese as a replacement. I'll let you know how it goes

And I agree with Mountaingirl, LindaSue, you are such a kind heart and a wonderful resource!!

Keep me in mind whenever you make anything dairy free!!

Thanks,

We had these last night as an appetizer made in the mini muffin pans. Safeway had chopped tri color peppers on sale, so I used those and chopped them more in my food processor. As everyone has said, they are delicious!

I did use Chipotle Mayo, but I think next time I'll try Tartar Sauce. Or maybe a little sour cream mixed with lemon, lemon rind and some crushed red pepper.

Thanks all for your rating of this great recipe!

Sooz ~ Thanks for posting that you made these in your mini muffin pan - I was wondering about that. I'll try them in the mini pan next. *▄*

I don't see why they wouldn't work with turkey or chicken. If you use canned, just break it up with a fork like you would with tuna. If using your own cooked chicken, you may want to chop it up with a food chopper or grind it a bit in a food processor. LisaUK said she was going to try making a ham version and will let me know how they turn out. I think that sounds yummy as well as the chicken/turkey version. We'll need to think of some great sauces to put over them. How about some mushroom Alfredo sauce over the chicken ones? What would go nice with ham?

I think canned chicken or turkey would work fine. The meat simply adds texture and helps hold them together. The seasonings and old bay powder give them the great flavor.

Just when I was trying to think of a good sauce to serve with ham muffins, someone posted this recipe on the main board. I think it would be just the thing.

Outback Steakhouse Bloominĺ Onion Dip
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
2 tsp. Ketchup
2 tsp. Creamy Horseradish (use plain to save on carbs - Linda)
1/4 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Oregano
Dash Black pepper
Dash Cayenne pepper

Blend well and let sit 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Mmmmmm... I want to try the ham version with the Outback sauce. I'll bet it'll be great! I forgot that DH starts back to school on Tuesday, so no cooking tonite. But I may make them for an appetizer for tomorrow nite!

Well.... I couldn't wait. I made a batch with the ham so DH could have some before he went off to school. They are great! I followed LindaSue's Tuna Muffin recipe exactly, except I ground 12 oz of ham up in my food processor and used a dash of Cajun seasonings instead of Old Bay. I have some Hollandaise Sauce in a jar that is <1 gram of carbs, so topped them with that.

I'm sure glad I found this place! Everyone is so creative!
