My husband doesn't like tuna so the girls and I like to make these for our lunch. Tayana doesn't eat tuna either, but she loves these tuna balls. We like them the to make them with the dairy free margarine.
3 cans (5 oz each) tuna, drained
1 cup safe bread crumbs (I used this recipe)
3 tbsp melted dairy free margarine, oil or safe salad dressing
Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients until the mixture can be rolled, adding more bread crumbs as needed. Roll the mixture into 1” balls. Place them on a well sprayed foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly crispy on the outside. If you have the time, flip the balls halfway through baking so they brown evenly. Serve warm or chilled.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
