Reviews for Tuna Burgers
"Made these yesterday for supper, changed one thing I used chopped green onion instead of regular just because that's what I had on hand. My husband loved them he said he could eat these everyday. We also topped are burgers with lettuce, tomato and tarter sauce and he also added cheese. Very very good, defiantly a keeper. Thx Kim"
"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."
"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!"
"Would I make it again? I already did, so simple and sooo delicious."
"My husband loved them and asked me to make them tonight! We had never had tuna burgers before but I'm glad I gave them a try."
