  • 2 1/2 cups Sunshine® Krispy® Original crackers
  • 2 1/2 cups Kellogg's® Zesta® Original crackers cart
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs separated
  • 1 can (10 1/2 oz.) cream of celery soup
  • 1/2 soup can of milk

Directions:

1. Flake tuna very fine. In a medium bowl, combine flaked tuna, 1 1/2 cups of the crackers crumbs, grated onion, lemon rind and salt.

2. In a small saucepan, heat butter or margarine. Stir in the combined flour and milk. Cook, stirring, over low heat until mixture boils and is very thick. Remove from heat.

3. Beat in egg yolks. Pour sauce into tuna mixture. Blend and chill for at least 2 hours.

5. Shape tuna mixture into 8 cones or balls. Beat egg whites until frothy. Dip croquettes into remaining crumbs, then into egg whites, then into crumbs again. Fry until golden brown (about 2 minutes).

6. To make walnut sauce for the croquettes, combine 1 can of soup, milk and walnuts. Stir over low heat until mixture is blended.
