Avocado Tuna “Balls”

First of all, if you want a TRULY divine Tuna recipe – check out my amazing Tuna Casserole recipe!

I had this great dinner planned for the kids.  We were going to have mustard & sage baked chicken, cheesy broccoli and mini potatoes (the potatoes were for them, not me).  It was Sunday night after a long weekend and they came upstairs and asked if we could just order a gluten-free pizza.  Sigh….

It had been a while, so I agreed.  Now was my dilemma time.  What was I going to make for my husband and I?  We weren’t incredibly hungry so I needed something light but that I could also make with common ingredients that I have on hand.

What’s a mom to do? I picked a lunch item and went with it.  Let me tell ya, these hit the spot.  My kids even asked for some.  Can you guess my answer?  NO! Ok, well, I let them split one!

The reason I have “balls” in quotes is because mine did not turn out as balls.  They were a little crumbly when I was trying to cook them.  I think it was because I didn’t make the ball firm enough.  Next time, I will make them a little flatter and make them into mini patties!
