Several weeks ago we made one of our family favourites, Tuna Burgers. This is one of the meals I had many times growing up and it’s one recipe that has stayed with me over the years.

Today I’ll be sharing some fabulous pictures demonstrating how we made the burgers. There are plenty of pictures and you can find the recipe at the bottom of the page. This is a great healthy meal option but also something which is fun for kids to make.

If you’re a bariatric patient then this is a great recipe which you can eat without the bread. Tuna has plenty of protein and these burgers are very filling!
