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.

The tuna meatball version is amazing. To health it up a bit I substituted white bread for wholemeal and baked instead of fried... I also added a couple of chopped chillis for a spicy kick! Exellent with home made tomato and herb sauce, its a favourite at home already!

the whole family enjoyed this healthy option to the traditional burger. I made them in advance, rolled them in breadcrumbs and put them in the fridge for 20 mins to firm up.

Enjoy
