    I make these minus the corn and I also freeze them. Great to grab in a hurry. Reheat by placing on a sandwich press.

    We also swap the tuna with salmon and they are just as yummy.

    Are the eggs required? My son is allergic to eggs so am always on the hunt for egg free recipes. What about using creamed corn to help bind – would that work?

      They do help to bind it. You can try adding swelled chia seeds or an egg replacement.

    I sometimes add a bit of mayo to bind instead of eggs, maybe an egg free one. Also add flavour
