Updated February 4, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 (12 1/2-oz.) can tuna packed in water, drained, flaked
  • 4 leaves leaf lettuce
  • 4 burger buns, split
  • 4 slices tomato
  • Tartar sauce, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat grill. Beat egg in medium bowl. Add bread crumbs, onion, hot pepper sauce and tuna; mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties, 3/4 inch thick.
  • 2
    When ready to grill, place patties on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until deep golden brown, turning once.
  • 3
    Place lettuce on bottom halves of buns. Top each with patty, tomato and top half of bun. Serve with tartar sauce.

  • To broil patties, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
  • These burgers contain pantry staples you can have on hand for spur-of-the-moment grilling.
  • For a zippier flavor, try seafood sauce in place of the tartar sauce.
  • Try Kaiser rolls or sesame or poppy seed buns with these burgers. Toast the buns on the grill during the last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking time.
