1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cans tuna (in water) drain well (2 x 6 oz. cans) (250 g. after draining)
1-2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
1/2 c. light or regular mayonnaise (or more if needed) (125 g.)
1 1/2 c. cracker crumbs (I use saltine crackers using a blender to mash them) (105 g.)


1/2-1 tsp dried dill (or 1-2 tbsp fresh chopped)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 c. light or regular mayo (125 g.)

How to make Easy Tuna Burgers (Patties)


Step 1: Add the tuna to a medium bowl and flake using a fork. Then, add the cracker crumbs along with the egg, celery, and mayonnaise. Mix well until everything is blended.

Step 2: Shape the mixture into patties. Cook the patties in a lightly greased frying pan for about 3 to 4 minutes per side over low-medium heat until golden brown and cooked through.

Step 3: Serve the tuna burgers right away. If desired, top with dill mayo sauce. Enjoy!


Step 4: Place the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and dill in a small bowl. Mix well until combined.
