tuna burgers, St. Paddy's Day inspired.

tuna burgers

I took my kids to the Science World today and was wondering why the heck there seemed to be so many kids wearing green.  I finally figured it out.

My boy's favorite color is green so I thought we should do something about it.  First, we came home and all changed into green clothing.   Then I went on about leprauchans, pots of gold and shamrocks.  They looked at me puzzled so I asked who wanted to help me make green tuna burgers.  That got even stranger looks.

I was already going to make tuna burgers so a little shot of green dye in my tuna "patties" is right up the alley for St. Paddy's Day, don't ya think?  Yes, I'm pretty sure tuna has nothing to do with the Irish but throw me a bone here, ok.  Pretty good for last minute idea.

Don't forget to have a pint of green beer with your green burger too :)

3 cans(184 g net weight) of tuna, water packed

generous pinch of salt

Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.

* If you want them green, you'll have to add some food coloring to the ingredients, before you form the patties.
