Method

  1. Whizz the bread in a food processor to crumbs, tip into a bowl, then whizz half the sweetcorn until finely chopped. Add the chopped corn, remaining whole corn, tuna, cheese, spring onions and some seasoning into the bowl with the bread and mix well. Add the egg, bit by bit (you may not need it all), until the mixture is sticky enough to be shaped into four even-size burgers.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, then cook the burgers for 5 mins on each side until golden and hot through the middle. Stuff into wholemeal buns with your favourite lettuce and a good dollop of salsa.

As AppleStrudel says: VERY FILLING!

I changed the shape and made them into sausages for hot-dogs with lashings of sweet chilli sauce (definitely recommend!) and after two small ones at lunch time, I couldn't think about food until after 8 that evening!

Fantastic recipe, just cut the ingredients!

This is the first recipe that I have used from this site. My family loved the burgers. I added some chilli flakes and instead of spring onions, I fried a chopped onion and added that. The hint about putting the burgers in the freezer to firm them up really works!

Quick, easy, cheap and tasty. But as I'm Indian I added a few extra spices like garlic, ground cumin, garam masala and chilli which made it just right for my palette.

Delicious! Unfortunately, not all the burgers stayed as one!! Perhaps another egg required! Really really tasty though :D make sure to drain the tuna well!

Did anyone else turn out with burgers that tasted like hot tuna sandwiches?? Not sure what I did wrong...

Much better than expected!! I don't have a food processor so chopped some of the sweetcorn using a sharp knife. Worked a treat. I recommend draining the tuna well though as they could easily have become soggy.

Don't have a blender, is whizzing half of the sweetcorn that important? Or should I try a can of whole kernals and a can of creamed corn - never had creamed corn before as the look of it has always put me off!

These were great! I put them on the grill instead but they were just as nice!

Surprisingly tasty burgers and quite healthy too! I grilled them with a dash of olive oil on both sides and they came out great.

Really liked these. Made half the amount and added chopped parsley & instead of binding together with an egg used some chilli sauce - yummy!

We weren't big fans - won't be trying this one again. I thought from the comments that they'd be really like burgers, but they were too much like tuna and sweetcorn!

Made these for dinner last night & they were delicious. Easy to make, quick to cook-what more can you ask for? Great tuna burger recipe.

Really yummy, and i dont even like tinned tuna but I thought I'd try these due to all the good comments and I'm glad I did. I left out the cheese because I hate it, but they still held together really well. The sweetcorn and spring onions really made them. They were even a really decent size. The only thing I would say is that 5 minutes on 1 side could be too much but thats probably my fault.

i made these last night and they were a great hit, they tasted so fresh, i decided to add some extra bread to mine as they didnt seem to bind very well but they were super tasty, will have to make them again :)

This was the first time my partner and I enjoyed the same burger together. My partner is pescetarian and I'm a meat eater so burgers aren't the norm because I really dislike quorn veggie burgers.

Today I used some leftover mixture to make the meatballs and they were great as well!

I have made these a few times now and they always go down well. Easy to make and very tasty, they are a great alternative burgers using meat. Today I had no spring onions so I used a finely chopped small onion instead, frying it to soften it before adding it to the mixture and it worked fine as a compromise
