Tuna Burgers Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family was hesitant to try these burgers when I first prepared them. They were so accustomed to the typical beef burger. But any skepticism they had disappeared after one bite.—

"Our whole family really liked these burgers, which is rare. I left out the chili sauce as we don't care for anything spicy. Even so, it was excellent and a fairly inexpensive meal."

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 18, 2011

"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!"
