  1. Beat eggs and stir in the breadcrumbs, pickles, shallot, thyme, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Add in tuna and cheese and stir to combine.
  2. Form the mixture into four patties of equal size, with a thickness of about 1/2 inch (1 cm) each. Chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the tuna patties without cluttering the pan. Cook for 3-5 minutes each side or until lightly browned. Place a slice of cheese on each patty. Cover the pan and remove from heat. Let stand for 2 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  4. Place patties on buns and garnish with pickles, lettuce, tomato and red onion (if used).
