Tuna Burgers Recipe

Tuna burgers are a simple and delicious alternative to regular hamburgers. This recipe calls for baking the burgers in the oven, making them a healthier option as well.

Jesse and I tried this tuna burger recipe last week and fell in love, we actually made it for dinner again last night. I found the recipe on Pinterest, originally from here, and of course, tweaked it so that the ingredients were things that I already had on hand at the house. My recipe probably has a few more calories than the original but it’s just as tasty, and better for you than take out!

These are really simple to make too! Just mix bread crumbs with 2 cans of tuna, an egg, some mayo, parsley, dill, and salt+pepper in a bowl.

The easiest way to mix this together, and make sure the egg is broken up is to use your hands! Which is always more fun to me 🙂 

Then form the mixture into patties, place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. 

Then plop your burger on a bun or plate, but we prefer buns with mayo, mustard, lettuce, and pickles, and enjoy!
