Quick Tuna Burgers

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/quick_tuna_burger.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2011

Turn a couple cans of tuna into a zesty tuna burger with this quick recipe. If you can’t find good whole-wheat hamburger buns, whole-wheat English muffins are a great substitute. The burger mixture might seem a little soft going into the pan, but once the first side is cooked, you’ll be able to flip them easily. Serve with steamed broccoli or sweet potato fries.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine tuna, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, half of the pimientos (or roasted red peppers), celery, onion and 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning in a medium bowl, breaking up any larger pieces of tuna until the mixture is uniform and holds together.
  2. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise, the remaining pimientos (or peppers) and 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning in a bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Using a generous 1/3 cup each, form the tuna mixture into four 3-inch burgers. Cook until heated through and golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Spread the top half of each bun (or English muffin) with pimiento mayonnaise and place a burger, lettuce and tomato on the bottom half.
