The Tuna Loaf Challenge – be there or be square!

In 2014, Town and Kountry Mouses was born and it’s been a great year. In the words of the dolphins in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, “So long, and thanks for all the fish!”  We’re looking forward to a terrific 2015, but first, a heartfelt THANK YOU. This blog wouldn’t be the success it is today without you, our fabulous foodie friends, so we wanted to do something to celebrate. Woo-hoo! 🙂

So many of our fondest memories come from sharing food with the people we love, so we’d like to do that with you. How about it? C’mon, it’ll be fun!

I present to you the humble tuna loaf. There’s only a few ingredients, yet it is wildly customizable.

170 g of fish 170 g tuna tuna, salmon, white fish, squid, shark, you name it!
1 cup diced vegetable 1 cup diced raw onion onion, celery, pepper, bok choy, spinach, olives, whatever your heart desires!
1 large egg, lightly beaten 1 large egg, lightly beaten I’m not sure what you can use instead of an egg here, but if it works, I’m all ears!
