Tuna Cakes

A long time ago, my aunt made some Tuna Cakes that were made with Cream Cheese. I was thinking this would be PERFECT for Atkins and they were SOOO good. I haven't been able to find the recepie and was wondering if anyone might have it. I searched the recepie section of the site and couldn't find it.

If I was going to try to make up this recipe, it would have cream cheese, an egg, celery, salt and other spices. Do you remember anything else that would be in the recipe? Tuna is cheap. We can experiment!!

Linda Sue has a recipe for Tuna Muffins on her site. No cream cheese...but they're pretty good.

These sound really good. Do you think it would work with the chopped canned clams instead of tuna?
