Tuna Cakes with Tartar sauce - round 2

So I made tuna cakes a while back if you recall, without an egg. They turned out not too bad but this one was a little bit better, just because it wasn't so mushy in the middle and it held together a bit better. I also made tartar sauce to go along with it this time and it was nummers. I doubled the tuna cake recipe to feed all five of us. I used less saltines than it called for and I added some feta cheese to it!!

~ 1 (6 oz.) can tuna, drained
~ 1 egg, beaten
~ 1 tbsp. onion, minced
~ 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
~ 12 Saltines, crumbled
~ 1/4 c. skim milk
~ 1/4 tsp. butter
~ Dash of pepper
~ handful of feta cheese (optional)

In medium bowl combine all ingredients except butter and shape into 6 equal patties. In 10 inch nonstick skillet, heat butter until bubbly and hot; add patties and cook over medium heat, turning once, until browned on both sides.
Makes 2 servings, 3 cakes each.

Tartar sauce

~ 1 cup mayonnaise
~ 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
~ 1 tablespoon minced onion
~ 2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)
~ 1 tsp. dill weed
~ salt and pepper to taste

Mix altogether and refrigerate for 1 hour before using.
