Day 126 : Tuna Burger Sensations

This is one of my own recipes.  I came up with it about a year or so ago.  I had been eyeballing a few similar recipes but none worked just right for me, and though I had never even had a tuna burger before, I decided to just come up with my own.  I was quite pleased with the results and have made them many times since then.

The name comes from those Tuna Sensations I mentioned in a different recipe.  I typically use the sun-dried tomato variety for this, but I plan to try the lemon pepper one next time or maybe even the thai one.  The burger is full of flavor and very simple to make.  One thing I hadn’t expected when I first made them was that they are rather soft where a typical burger would be somewhat chewy.  The softness makes it the perfect food for my youngest who has yet to get any molars.  Just be sure you handle them with care while cooking so they can retain their burger shape throughout.
