Sometimes I just get sick of the usual beef and turkey burgers.
Tonight, while giving our kitties their very favorite treat (tuna water) I had an idea to turn the tuna into burgers. I added a little of this and a little of that from the cabinet and was so happy with the result! These are delish! Crispy, perfectly flavored and awesome for the summer!
2 cans Tuna packed in water, drained
1 1/2T. Ranch dip mix seasoning (if you are dairy-free, look for the ranch dip packets in the Kosher section of your grocery store – those are dairy-free.)
1/4C. Seasoned bread crumbs (plus more for dredging)
1t. Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste (I didn’t use extra salt, just pepper)
Add all ingredients (except oil) into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Separate tuna mixture into 4 equal portions. Place extra bread crumbs on a plate. Form tuna into patties and dredge in bread crumbs. Let rest for a few minutes while the oil heats.
Add oil to a large pan and heat on medium high for 2-3 minutes.
Add patties to the oil and cook 4 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to get rid of the excess oil and serve.
