I think I'm on the right track but this may need a little tweaking. I was originally going to put in two cans of tuna but I thought that might be too much so I only used one. I've decided that it needs another can. I also think it could use a little more of either the onion powder or the minced onion and also a tad more salt, maybe another 1/8 teaspoon or so. Even as it is now, I liked it quite well. Click the photo to see a close-up.
