Fabulous recipe. Een the kids liked these, and we loved that they're pretty heart healthy. Didn't add anything to the recipe (which is odd for me) - it was great as is. Served them on hamburger buns with lettuce, tomato and light mayo. Excellent!
I loved it though it took me a while longer than 15 min to make! I added about 1 tbsp of oats to soak in the moisture from the carrots, maybe that´s why the burgers weren´t falling apart like you have been warning. Served with gnocci and fresh tomato salad - yummmm! Thanks!
I tried these again with the carrots and they were wonderful! I did not have a problem keeping them together. So very simple to make with an excellent flavor. I will make these again and again. I now LOVE tuna patties!!!
These were very good. I used dried parsley flakes. I also popped them in the freezer for about 10 mins before frying and they held together perfectly. I love getting so much protein in one meal! I'm semi-vegitarian--so this will be a 'regular' in my house so I can get the protein I need.
This was my first time trying tuna burgers, but I have the feeling it won't be my last! I reduced the recipe to serve 1, using half a can of tuna, 1 tablespoon bread crumbs, just an egg white, etc. I had it as suggested, on a bun with lettuce and mayonnaise. The only change I made was to omit the cayenne pepper. It was an excellent light dinner! The burger was tasty and moist, and also looked attractive with the flecks of orange (carrot) and green (green onions and parsley). Very quick and easy to make. I will definitely be keeping this recipe!
My family has been making tuna patties (also salmon patties) since the 1950's or 1960's. We've always made them with chopped onion (whatever kind we had on hand -- white, red, yellow, or green), crackers crushed by hand (so they are not as fine as bread crumbs), egg, and a little milk, if needed. I haven't tried your recipe yet, but I like the idea of the carrots and will incorporate them into a future batch, with or without your other ingredients.<br/><br/>We've eaten the patties on bread with mayo or Miracle Whip, adding dill pickles, tomato, and/or lettuce as desired. We've also eaten them by themselves at dinner and then any leftovers cold the next day. There is one way we eat them that has not been mentioned in these comments: We heat a can of cream of mushroom soup, diluted with milk or water, to the desired consistency. You don't want it too runny, so I wouldn't put more than 1/2 can of liquid. Then eat the patties on a plate with the mushroom soup poured over. Delicious!<br/><br/>Thank you for posting your recipe and giving me the idea of using the carrots.
Great change for using Tuna. I used 10 unsalted crackers and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning mix. Put in processer to the texture of bread crumbs. No problem with falling apart. This is a keeper. Thanks.
This was a great way to use canned tuna! The patties had a wonderful flavor. I halved the recipe and used about 2 tbsp of minced onion and some Tabasco instead of cayenne. Turned out beautifully. I'll make these again!
