  • Hey Derek! Just want to say this tuna is BEAST! I add fresh dill to mine, and I haven’t tried adding bacon bits yet (always forget to buy it!) but I do want to try chopping up some cooked turkey bacon. Thanks so much for the recipes, it really helps out.

      • Omg! It’s really good! You really saved me! I work out late evening most of the time and I wanted to eat something light and rich in protein! You made my dream come true 🙂 I don’t eat bacon so I used white beans as alternative. thanks a lot for sharing it!
