  • Ready In

  1. Combine tuna, egg, bread crumbs, onion, celery, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, hot chili sauce, chili sauce, dill, salt, pepper, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle, if desired.
  2. Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray; fry tuna patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. These are fragile, so be careful when turning them.
  3. Serve on buns with tomato slices and lettuce leaves, if desired.


  • Editor's Note:
  • The original can of tuna was 6 ounces and has since been reduced to 5 ounces due to manufacturer's change. Amounts of bread crumbs, mayonnaise, and seasoning may need to be slightly reduced.

Not something I minded having, but not something I'll look forward to having again. I didn't add the red pepper, dill or egg; used plain breadcrumbs. Only doubled the tuna amount - 12oz can so...

This was a fantastic recipe. I have made tuna patties in the past and this recipe had the best flavor and consistency...similar to crab cakes. I added a bit more bread crumbs...about 3/4 cup t...

Recipe pretty good as is, but next time, I will make the following changes: use regular bread crumbs--not Italian flavored. The oregano was overpowering. Also, use green onion and not regular. I...

I was suprisingly pleased with this recipe, the burgers were easy and delicious. However, my suspicions were correct, one can of tuna will not make four burgers.

These tuna burgers are excellent. I made the "salsa" (onions/celery/bell pepper/chili sauce, spices) a day in advance. I also microwaved it for a short time; I didn't want the veggies to be too ...

I'm always trying to find new recipes during lent, and I know I found a keeper this time. Yum! I made these twice. The first time they came out very soggy, but with good flavor. The second t...

Very good. Interestingly enough, I found that they blend perfectly with a side dish of Bush's BBQ flavor baked beans.

I didn't have chili sauce, so I put in a bunch of chili powder and lots of RedHot sauce. They were great! Even better cold the next day!

These were excellent. My husband and I enjoyed them so much that we had them twice this week! I grated some carrot to put in, and next time, I think I will add some frozen niblet corn (we love...
