  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

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.

I found the burgers fell to pieces and didnt "hold" very well prior to cooking so not sure where I went wrong, tasty nonetheless

Very very nice but I do grill or bake instead of fry just to be a bit healthier :D highly recommend this recipe!!

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!

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.
