These are absolutely delicious. I'm serving them for supper tonight, with two cold salads. A very nice, light and easy to make dish. I made it even lower sodium by using no sodium dry chicken broth in place of the poultry seasoning. Yummy. Thanks so much for a great recipe.
I only got 24 balls. I sectioned it off into quarters and then cut each quarter into six cubes. Then, I rounded it off a bit. That size seemed about right to me. It went really fast and my 9 year old helped me roll them, then I dipped into butter. I did need a second can of tuna to make it work and a little more breadcrumbs. I am figuring people will eat 3-4 of these in my size. (If you left me alone with them, I would eat more). YUM!
Hmmmm, I must have done something wrong. I had to use 2 cans of tuna to make enough pieces and it was very mushy-- hard to make into balls to roll in the corn flakes. The tast was ok, but don't think I'll make them again. I guess I just don't have that tuna touch :(
