Tuna Burgers

Rantings of an Amateur Chef

Growing up, one of our weekend lunch staples was Tuna Burgers. In reality, they were much more like the Tuna on Toasted Bagel recipe than something like a burger, but that is what we called them.

When I saw the recipe below, I was interested as it took the tuna and created something similar to a crab cake (but…um…with tuna) than the baked version I was used to. I tried it out and it was pretty darn good.
