Tuna and Potato Burgers

My love of anything burger-like is well-documented. These are a different take on a fish burger. The addition of mashed potato to the patty gives it both a nice heartiness and a more substantive texture. Also, they’re healthy, quick, and inexpensive-ding! ding! ding! Here you go.

WHAT YOU NEED
* 1 medium potato, peeled, steamed/boiled, and mashed
* 3T light mayonnaise
* 12oz chunk light tuna packed in water, drained
* 1 egg white
* 2 green onions, chopped
* 2T breadcrumbs, plus more for light coating
* 1t garlic salt
* 1/2t lemon pepper
* olive oil

WHAT TO DO
Boil or steam your potato (A quick shortcut if you’re tight on time is to pierce it several times with a fork, then place it in a bowl or dish with a little water and microwave it for 5 minutes. The peel comes right off and you can mash it up and keep going right away.).

Pour some more breadcrumbs into a shallow dish.

Form the mixture into six patties and coat lightly in the additional breadcrumbs on both sides.

Heat a little olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the patties in the oil and cook about 3 minutes per side, until they are lightly browned. Serve with a squeeze of lemon on a bun with leafy romaine lettuce. Delish! Fast! Easy! Winner winner, tuna potato burgers for dinner!
