    Jes-cooks's Note:

    If you dont enjoy, or cant always eat red meat, this may be a perfect substitution. Its a heart, tasty, explosive on your taste buds burger that can be topped with your favorite toppings just as you would with a regular burger. I make it for my nieces all the time and they absolutely love it. Considering they are 12 and 5, feeding them tuna mixed with veggies.....that they LOVE.....is a great thing.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2-3

    Yield:

    burger ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 ounces tuna, drained (2 cans, usually)
    • 5 tablespoons breadcrumbs (I like the italian style breadcrumbs)
    • 2 tablespoons pickle relish
    • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (I use fresh, if you are using pre-packaged dry parsely only use 1/2 tablespoon)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped scallion
    • 2 tablespoons chopped white onions
    • 1 stalk celery, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 1/3 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon pepper
    • 3 tablespoons egg substitute or 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon oil (or margarine, dont use butter, it has salt, that mixes with the salt already added to the mix)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients (but not the tuna or the oil yet) together in a bowl. Once they are mixed well add the Tuna to the mix, and fold it into itself until all the ingredients are well mixed.
    2. 2
      Heat a sauce pan with the oil on a medium heat.
    3. 3
      while that heats up for a minute, grab a good amount of the mixture in the bowl, and shape it like a burger (this mix will make 2-3 burgers).
    4. 4
      place the burger in the pan and cook it for 3-5 minutes on each side (you will know its done on that side because it will be a light-medium brown.
    5. 5
      place it on a burger bun, or a pita like I do. Top it with cheese, or tomatoes, or lettuce, or all of them plus whatever else you would like.
    6. 6
      This is a great alternative to beef burgers, that arent healthy to eat too often.

      Really good! The first non-meat burgers I've ever made that stayed together while cooking/flipping. So good, I even made them for the in-laws. I'm not the world's biggest canned tuna fan; the title of this recipe is correct... "this is tuna?"

      I enjoyed this recipe very much. I did not have the parsley or the scallions but it still was delicious. I used poupon mustard instead. Thanks

      All I can say is 'amazing'. Ive been trying to get my kids (a teenage boy and preteen girl) to eat something with a healthy twist, and they love this! I think I'll try some other things you have to offer!
