Probably not the best time to be posting a recipe for a burger but had the ingredients in my cupboard and that’s just how I roll. Shoot me for it 🙂
In all seriousness though, this Tuna Sweetcorn Burger combines traditional tuna and sweetcorn flavours typically found in sandwiches so you know it’s going to be a winner. A great fish alternative to your regular red meat burger that is still just as high in protein, low in fat and doesn’t fall apart!
Tuna Sweetcorn Burger
- 2 cans Tuna, drained (240g)
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 whole egg
- 25 g reduced fat cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 can sweetcorn, drained (160g)
- 2 slices high-protein bread (we used 'Hi-Lo' from Sainsburys)
Blend the bread in a food processor or blender to crumbs along with half of the sweetcorn
Add the remaining ingredients and shape into four burgers
Heat a non stick pan then cook the burgers for 5 mins on each side until golden and hot through the middle.
Serve in wholemeal buns with lettuce, tomato and a good dollop of salsa (not included in nutritional info)
"Hi-Lo" bread can be found in Sainsbury's in the usual bread section and has an incredible 8g of protein, 5g of carbs and 3g of fat per slice! However, feel free to substitute and change nutritional info accordingly.
