Quick Tuna Burgers

March/April 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (52 votes)

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.

Easy and yum!

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 it! Healthy and filling

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. :)

Easy, fast, ingrediants on hand
healthy, fine burger but lacking?

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.

fresh and light, fine taste
Hubby loved it.

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.

Easy and delicious.
Family Gave It A Thumb's Up!

Made this after seeing the recipe in my Eating Well magazine. Used my own light chipotle mayo to give it a little extra spice and increased the Old Bay slightly. Also used pimentos. My husband and kids loved it - hubby said it was a "do-over", but my daughter complained that it didn't have much texture because she wanted it a little more like a typical burger. That was the only negative for this tasty, healthy burger. I don't eat red meat so it's a big hit with me. Definitely plan on keeping this as a regular meal item.

Easy, Quick, Flavorful
