Mack's Tunaburgers
This was ok. I used steak sauce instead of teriaki. My kids liked it. I too am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, but we don't count seafood as meat, so this is a great way to use tuna. I also used about a 1-2 tsp. of cayenne pepper instead of hot sauce. The only thing is that you have to start out with a really thick patty to end up with a well cooked burger. I did a lot of flippin' and smashin' to make sure it was not mushy on the inside, all in all, a good recipes!
