Lemon Garlic Tuna Burgers

This sounds like a new twist on tuna, so we’re going to try it.. with a few changes. (Bun instead of muffin, gluten-free bread crumbs, upping from 4 servings to 6, etc.) Here’s the recipe as I found it though..

Tuna Burgers

2, 6 oz cans tuna fish, drained and flaked 1.98
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs 0.30
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions 0.20
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley 0.20
2 cloves garlic, minced 0.10
1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper 0.02
juice of half a lemon 0.35

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.
