Tuna cakes can be dry and lack flavor. I'm so proud of this recipe because it adds a moist flavorful taste for a quick healthy meal!




Flake tuna in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, add next 5 ingredients and blend well. Add small bowl to tuna and blend. Slowly add in broth. Texture will be pretty thin. Add in cornbread mix, until texture is slightly stiff but not dry. Add egg and blend well. Fry in canola oil on medium heat, turning only once. Serve with Lime Tarter Sauce (recipe below).

This was one of my grama's standby recipes when I was a little girl and is her version of SOS ('Stuff on a Shingle' but she used a different word for 'stuff' - tee hee). And before anyone thinks that it's offensive using grama's recipe title, please note that she lived in a trailer park and had a sense of humor. I simply must recommend good old fashioned 'Wonder Bread' for this recipe - LOL.


  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 2 (5 oz.) cans of tuna, drained
  • 1/2 (14 oz.) can of peas, drained, or more if desired
  • 4 slices white bread, toasted
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Melt butter in pan over medium heat, whisk in flour to make the roux, whisk in milk a little at a time and continue stirring until sauce thickens.

Bring to a boil, add tuna and peas and cook until heated through, gently stirring occasionally.

Spoon evenly over each slice of toast, season with salt and pepper and serve.

If your sauce becomes too thick, simply add a wee bit more milk. If sauce is not thick enough, add about a half teaspoon of cornstarch.

  • 1 5 oz. can white Albacore tuna
  • 1 10 10 oz. can mushroom soup,
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 small red pepper, chopped up
  • Spices
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 6 oz Light N' Fluffy Noodles (1/2 of a 12 oz. bag)

*I used all dry spices: 1/2 teaspoon minced onion, 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic, a few dashes of black pepper, a small sprinkle of dill, and a dash of basil.


  1. In a medium saucepan bring water to boil, and cook noodles - to al dente. Drain, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter, add red peppers, onion, garlic and spices, stirring quickly, remove from stove if it begins to stick.
  3. Then put the tuna in and flake it up. Then add the mushroom soup, and 1 can of 1% milk.
  4. Stirring until mixed well, turn the heat down and it will simmer nicely for about fifteen minutes.
  5. Then toss the mix into the noodles and WHA-LA! Yummy!

Mix the tuna fish and Miracle Whip. Put a heaping tablespoon of the mixture on each muffin half. Top with a slice of cheddar cheese. Broil until hot and brown. This happens very quickly so watch closely!
