This was a very delicious and simple to prepare tuna burger recipe. I used panko breadcrumbs and added a teeny bit of salt to taste. I loved the creativity of using the pimentos and Old Bay seasoning to form the mayo mixture. This is a keeper!
Quick Tuna Burgers
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.

So delicious, I will definitely make these again. Would have been "awesome" if they hadn't fallen apart a bit when turning them. Maybe next time I'll add an egg? This time I did make a few modifications due to preference and lack of certain items:
-Didn't have light mayo, so used a little full fat mayo, some lowfat sour cream and some lowfat plain yogurt
-had no celery, so I used finely diced carrot instead
-substituted Paul Prudhomme's "Seafood Magic" seasoning for the OId Bay, and put an extra shake of it into the burger mixture.
We love this recipe. I use it all the time. Just found it again and going to make it tonight. It's great leftover too. Super easy and healthy. Will fill you up all night. :)
This was a fine burger, very fresh and I like all of the ingredients. It did seem to be a bit lacking in the flavor department, granted I followed the recipe to a T. Also it was a bit mushier than I would have liked in a burger, but I'm sure I can't expect too much firmness from a canned tuna burger. It certainly didn't taste bad, and at certain parts the flavor shined through better than others.
My hubby loved this, and he's a red meat and potatoes kinda guy. I doubled the Old Bay in the tuna mix and used Miracle Whip instead of the mayo (didn't have any mayo). I served with fresh corn on the cob. This will definitely be added to the regular dinner rotation.
