Tuna Pecan Cream Cheese Roll

Had this most delicious spread at a luncheon this week.
So good I begged the recipe. I served them with
Linda's Buttery Sesame Crackers. AWESOME!

Tuna Pecan Cream Cheese Roll
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. good tuna in oil
Dash of garlic powder
Worcestershire sauce to taste
2 tsp. sweet pickle relish or to taste
Black pepper.
1c. chopped fresh pecans (set aside)

Mix well and fashion into a loaf or round
laying it on large sheet parchment paper.
Form a roll and chill well.
Remove from fridge and roll in pecans,
cover it well on both sides and ends.
Place back on parchment, chill very well

BUTTERY SESAME CRACKERS
3 ounces almond flour, 3/4 cup
2 teaspoons granular Splenda
1 egg white
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
3 teaspoons untoasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Mix all of the ingredients well in a small bowl. Chill the dough about 30 minutes. Drop the dough by 1/4 teaspoons onto a parchment-lined 12x17" baking sheet making 24 little piles leaving at least an inch between them. Pick the pieces of dough up one at a time and very gently roll into balls. Cover the dough with plastic wrap (you can use a small piece and move it around as needed) and take a baking powder can, that has about an 1/8" rim around the bottom, and press down firmly over each ball of dough. Be sure to press all the way down to the baking sheet. Peel off the plastic wrap and repeat until all the crackers have been shaped. Prick them with a fork.

Bake at 325║ for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature or freeze for longer storage.

Makes 24 crackers

My crackers came out very tender and crisp.
They get 5 stars from DH and myself.
They freeze well and retain their crispness.
They are going to be a weekly recipe like my healthy
butter and ghee are.

I'm glad that you liked the crackers, Barbo. The tuna roll sounds very good.

Sounds good, Barbo. I make something similar using chopped clams.

Tweaker...

Would you like to share the recipe? Clam recipes would be
appreciated. I used to love eating clam dip in the old days
at cocktail parties. I know we are reaching way back to ancient
times

Barbo - I don't use a recipe, just eyeball amounts, but it's about the same as what you posted above without the relish, a can of chopped clams and some of the clam juice if needed to loosen the cream cheese a bit if using as a dip.

Thanks Tweak

I'll figure it out. The more we include fish and seafood, the
better we do with our WOE.
