Lemon Garlic Tuna Burgers

Tuna Patty.
These burgers are very easy to make, and they are moist, flavorful, and healthy.  Now, I am not claiming they taste anywhere near as delicious as a beef burger, but I am claiming that these are yummy - anything with lemon and garlic is yummy!  I normally eat these hot, right out of the oven, on a toasted English muffin with some avocado, a tomato slice, lettuce, and some ketchup and mustard. However, I make 8 tuna patties at a time because these are also wonderful cold on a salad for lunch.  

Ingredients:
Ingredients.
25 oz. tuna (5 normal-sized tuna cans or 1 large can), drained
1 c panko breadcrumbs
1/2 c finely chopped green onions
6 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
juice of 1 1/2 lemons
6 tablespoons sour cream (I used non-fat)
2 eggs

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2.  Put the tuna, panko, green onions, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, sour cream, and 2 eggs in a medium bowl.  Mix well.

Ingredients in the bowl.
All mixed up.
3.  Form the tuna mixture into patties.  This recipe should make about 8 patties.  They should be fairly wet and will firm up a little when baked.

Patty pre-baked.
4.  Put the patties on a greased baking sheet or a silicone baking mat.  Bake for 20 minutes at 400, or until lightly browned and somewhat firm on the surface.  Enjoy!

Burger!
