Tuna Burgers

Earlier this week I made tuna burgers  for lunch, they were so easy and delicious! It's made out of things that I always have on hand, which is another plus! I found this recipe over at "Can You Stay For Dinner?" and just used what I had on hand. I love her site, she has a lot of supper yummy recipes and nutritional value listed for each. This tasty and filling burger is only 175 calories not including bun, sandwich thins are 110 calories.
Tuna Burgers 
makes four burgers
2, 6 oz cans tuna fish, drained and flaked 
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs (we only had Italian, and it still tasted good)
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (omitted this since I used Italian bread crumbs)
2 cloves garlic, minced  (added a little extra, we really like garlic)
1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper 
juice of half a lemon (added a little extra juice)
3 tablespoons sour cream 
1 egg
4 English muffins (we thought sandwich thins were a lot better)
4 leaves romaine
1 small tomato, sliced (we didn't have tomato, but it was still tasty without it)

Combine tuna, bread crumbs, green onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon, sour cream, and egg, and mix well with your hands. Form into 4 patties (they will be wet), place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. Serve the burgers on toasted English muffins with romaine and sliced tomato. Spread additional sour cream on each burger, if desired. 

Next time I make this, I am going to add some red onion, tomato and maybe some dijon mustard. I am also going to get a better picture, this was just taken with my phone. It was too good of a burger to share.  we are going to add some red onion and maybe some dijon mustard.

*Tip for forming patties, use your jar lids and saran-warp. For meat that will shrink, use one that is a little larger than your bun. Place saran-wrap over lid and form patty, lift saran-wrap and place on tray.
