Greek Style Tuna Burgers

Greek Style Tuna Burgers

Cracking the Eggs – Greek Inspired Tuna Burgers

2 cans of tuna in water, drained and flaked 

1 small zucchini, grated and squeezed to remove as much liquid as possible

1 – 1 ½ cups of bread crumbs or gluten free bread crumbs

½ red onion, minced

½ cup chopped green or black olives – optional

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1 egg, lightly beaten

Garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste

In a medium/large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix together thoroughly. Using about ½ cup of mixture, pat it gently into a burger shape. The burgers can be sticky and if you think your mixture is too sticky you can add some more bread crumbs and mix in thoroughly. 

Fry or grill burger patties in your favorite way – about 4-5 minutes each side. You can also bake them in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on how hot your oven runs.

Serve on a bun with your favorite fixings or over fresh greens. Enjoy!
