Tuna Burgers

I saw this recipe at The Not So Perfect Housewife and thought it was a great idea to get more fish into my family. Although, I can't blame them for the fact I struggle to serve fish...I just don't get that excited for it! So this looked like a great compromise.

I made 4 patties with 2 cans of tuna, and we ate them bun-less, I guess more like Salmon Patties. But overall I was very surprised at how yummy they were! I loved the combination of chili sauce and mayo in the burgers, and I also followed Mikki's lead and added some Old Bay. My husband and I loved ours, our two-year-old didn't touch them, but that wasn't a surprise.

Overall, this was a easy, frugal main dish that I will be making soon!

Tuna Burgers

1 (7 oz can tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon (to taste) Old Bay Seasoning

Combine the first 4 ingredients. Blend next 3 ingredients. Stir into tuna mixture. Form 4 patties. Fry lightly in oiled skillet over medium heat about 5 minutes or until browned. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings.

  1. Aww. I've passed on the Ewwww recipe. LOL!
    Well, glad you and your hubby like them :-). It took my girls a little while to try them out and now they like them.

    Have a great day!

  2. I had tuna burgers from fresh tuna but never from canned, so I will have to give these a try. Thanks for the recommendation. Just wanted to let you know that the Crock Pot Wednesday Mister Linky is up and ready. I really appreciate your entry last week. Please come join us again.
