Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from a parent at a luncheon at Nazareth H.S. when David was a freshman. I've made it every year since. Around holiday time I usually make a double amount to have 2 tuna logs. I use one tuna with oil and one with water, just make sure you drain them well. I also use 1 low fat cream cheese and one no fat to lower the calories a bit. While mixing the ingredients and when forming the log shape I use latex gloves (dollar store) while mixing and forming the log as it can be quite sticky until it is chilled. Enjoy.
