Reviews for Tuna Burgers
"Whole family LOVED these!! We topped our burgers with some cheese & tartar sauce. Super quick & easy meal."
"easy and inexpensive. just the ticket for us these days! it's something "else" to do with that tuna that's ALWAYS in the pantry. Thank you."
"Easy, delicious meal! I used fat free miracle whip instead of mayo and placed the patties in pita bread instead of buns. Awesome! I also put cucumber slices on the burger to give it a nice crunch My husband loved this meal!. He's already asked me to make it again!"
"I loved them, my husband thought they were good. Our kids said they were "ok" but they all finished them with no complaints, which speaks for itself. They really reminded me of crabcakes, and I could see myself making up some to keep handy in the fridge for quick lunches later also, as they were also as tasty when reheated later. Very good!"
"I have made these several times since I came across the recipe. They are just delicious. They are light tasty, have had them on a bun or just the burger with a salad. excellent!!"
"Oh...my...goodness!!!!! Now, anyone that knows me knows that it is an absolute MIRACLE when I actually take the time to cook a meal...let alone a good meal! I wanted something light to eat and I was going to make a regular tuna sandwich, but I happened upon this recipe and thought, "Why not?" Well, I successfully managed to whip this tuna burger up and it was ABSOLUTELY DIVINE!!!!! I made spinach dip on the side and also used it as a garnish on my burger - DELICIOUS!!! I still can't believe how good it was! :-D"
"I love crab cakes and these are almost as good for a fraction of the price. I have eaten them in buns with lettuce and pepper rings and bunless with tarter sauce. I don't use mayonaise in the recipe, but Miracle Whip Lite and that cuts the fat and calories some. I have given the recipe to family too. These are great!"
