How do I store my tuna patties?

Once patties are cooled, place them in an airtight container. These tuna patties will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator. Reheat when ready to eat, or serve cold.

Can I freeze tuna patties?

Lay the uncooked formed patties flat on a baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer safe container. Store in the freezer for about 3 months.
