Tuna-Patty Burgers 

INGREDIENTS 

  • 2 (6 1/2 ounce) cans tuna in water, drained
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 carrot, scraped and finely grated
  • 1/4 cup Italian-style seasoned dry bread crumb
  • 1 green onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 hamburger buns 

DIRECTIONS 

  • In a combine bowl, combine tuna, eggs, carrot, breadcrumbs, onion, parsley and cayenne; shape and mixture into four patties.
  • in a big skillet, heat with olive oil over medium heat.

  • Serve on hamburger buns (really nice if toasted) with your choice of condiments; I recommend lettuce leaves and mayonnaise.
