As a kid, my mom would make Tuna Rice Muffinettes with a tangy butter sauce.  I remember LOVING them and looking forward to when they would be served.  I continue to love them as an adult and make these for my family on a regular basis.  The tangy butter sauce definitely makes this already delicious recipe even more scrumptious!  Now, on to the recipe:

Tuna Rice Muffinettes With Tangy Butter Sauce

I LOVED this! My husband said it's the only thing made with tuna that he's ever liked.
