Tuna Burgers

Trying to cut down on the red meat and we made these last night. With the right spicing and cooking you would never guess these are not beef! We serve them on toasted whole grain bread with a yogurt Dijon sauce, sprouts, sliced tomatoes and finely chopped red peppers.

Makes 4 Large Burgers
1. 2 Cans Tuna (Chunk in Water, no salt added)
2. 1 Egg
3. 1 Cup Wheat Germ
4. 2 Tablespoons Montreal Steak Spice
5. 1 Tablespoon Ketchup

Drain tuna. Mix all the ingredients together with your hands until well blended. Form 4 equal patties. Place in fridge for 1/2 hour to firm up. Fry patties in lightly oiled pan at medium high heat for about 5 minutes per side, until golden.

Meanwhile for the Yogurt Dijon sauce:
1. 1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
2. 1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Grainy Dijon
3. 1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise

Mix together.

Place the burgers on your toasted whole grain bread, add your favorite toppings and a few tablespoons of the Yogurt Dijon sauce and Voila, a healthier alternative to a standard burger.

I know we shouldn't be eating fried food but we got about 2 feet of snow last night and the BBQ was not that appealing! Also was fried in about 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil so was not too bad.
