Easy Peasy Tuna Burgers

I was looking for something easy to make for lunch on Sunday.  I reached for the canned tuna and was getting ready to make some quick tuna melts, but then had a brainstorm - Tuna Burgers.

Instead of checking out recipes on pinterest, like I normally do, I took matters into my own hands and chanced it.   

Easy Peasy Tuna Burgers
- 2 cans drained tuna 
- handful of panko 
- 2 eggs

there really are 2 eggs in there, I think the other one is under the panko


1.  mix ingredients in bowl
2.  form patties
3.  add oil to pan - I used the panini grill and preheat
4.  add patties, cook approx 5 minutes per side
5.  eat! with or without bread, with your favorite toppings, etc.  
     I actually chose to put them on some bulkie rolls, add a little mayo, swiss cheese, and greens.  

my panini grill has been perfect for whipping up burgers and such

Ward raved about these.  
And Izzy at the entire burger.  Now that never happens.
I am going to have to make these again, soon!  



So easy, you have got to do this!  If you do and you try something different - like adding some fun spices and what-not, please come back here and share!   Now that I have a "base" - which was incredibly easy, I am going to have to put some creative twists on it!

  2. I was reading this thinking, :I am not a fan of tuna burgers" then I realized I have never even had one so how would I know. I do like tuna, so I am book marking this and going to try it today.. if I figure out what panko is..that God for Google.

  5. If I liked tuna then I'm sure these would be great :) I'm actually a horrible Mainer (and daughter of a lobsterman) and I don't eat any seafood!
