Made from Clover Leaf Flaked White Tuna, a mouth-watering burger for dinner that’s sure to appeal to the kid in everyone!


2 eggs
1/3 cup (75 mL) dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp (30 mL) each finely chopped dill pickles and green onion
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
2 cans (170 each) Clover Leaf Flaked White Tuna, drained
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
4 slices Cheddar cheese
4 whole wheat Kaiser or hamburger buns
Additional dill pickles (optional)
Lettuce, sliced tomato and red onion (optional)


  1. Beat eggs and mix in crumbs, pickles, green onion, salt and pepper. Crumble in the tuna and add the shredded cheese; toss to combine. Form mixture into four equal-sized patties, each about 1/2-in (1 cm) thick.
  2. Chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the tuna patties without crowding the pan. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Top each patty with a cheese slice. Cover the pan and remove from the heat. Let stand for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  4. Transfer patties to buns and top with pickles, lettuce, tomato and onion (if using).

Tip: To cook the patties on the grill: Preheat the grill to medium and grease well. Cook the patties for 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Add the cheese slices during the last minute of cooking.
