Thai-Style Tuna Burgers

I almost passed over these Thai Style Tuna Burgers in the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club selections.  It just didn't sound appealing at the time.  

But I do like canned tuna.  I was raised on it, we had tuna salad sandwiches often for lunch.  I keep a couple of cans in the pantry.  You never know when it will come in handy!  My daughters, however, are not fans of tuna.

So why not try a new spin on it?  This recipe makes 4 burgers, just enough to try without feeling like a lot of time or money was wasted.   It also turned out to be easy and healthy!

The recipe starts with a ginger/mayo mixture.  I used ginger in a jar since I had it on hand.  If you don't care for the strong ginger flavor, just don't spread the ginger/mayo on the bun.


I got my daughter to try it by telling her "if you like ginger with your sushi, you'll like this, just try it".   She liked it.  The Bassman liked it too.



The best thing about them, other than being healthy, is that the 2 year old grandaughter liked it too.  I love a good peanut and butter and jelly sandwich, but I was glad to find an alternative to change out the lunch options!
