Tuna Burgers

As I mentioned in a previous post I dislike eating something unhealthy after a workout, but am too exhausted to really cook anything. Well I think I may have found my go-to for my uninspired workout day dinner blues. The Tuna Burger. It’s simple, tasty, and versatile. It came from CanYouStayForDinner.com.

Lemon Garlic Tuna Burgers


  • 2 cans (6oz each) tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (I used a large bunch of chives, fresh from my garden)
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley (I used 2 Tbsp dried parsley)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (I used a few dashes of garlic powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon each, salt and pepper
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 4 English muffins
  • 4 leaves romaine
  • 1 small tomato, sliced


  1. Combine tuna, bread crumbs, green onions, parsley, garlic, salt & pepper, lemon juice, sour cream and egg. Mix well and form in to 4 patties. The mixture will be wet
  2. Place on a greased baking sheet (I just used ungreased tin foil; they came off ok, but it was a little tricky) and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes (or in a toaster oven, 10-20 minutes)
  3. Serve on the english muffins with lettuce and tomato. I ate mine open-faced on a piece of wheat bread with a slice of swiss cheese. Yummy!

    I’ve really been enjoying fish lately. When I ran across this quick and easy recipe for homemade tuna burgers, I knew it would be my next re-blog! There are a few cans of tuna in my pantry that are looking pretty good right now… and I bet that using Chobani 0% Plain would be a fine substitute for the sour cream to make it even healthier. Enjoy!
