    I had to increase my rating to 5 out of 5. They are even better once frozen and reheated. Seems to be more flavoursome. - 5/1/10

    I was thinking maybe 1 egg white might do the trick, they would be better if they were firmer.

    Very tasty! I served them as burgers on buns with a slice of cheese and tomato. Nice light summer supper! One word of caution....don't make these on a Forman type grill like I did, as the l id weight causes the patties to spread out more. Regular grill or skillet should work fine. - 6/23/08

    These were great!!!!! I halved the recipe being that it was only me and my hubby. Used two cans of tuna and half of the rest of the ingredients. It made three decent sized burgers. Cooked them slowly over medium heat in the skillet, they held up well. Put cheese on top. Def. a keeper! - 11/14/12

    These were soo goood!! I made them with egg first but they were kind of mushy. I took out the egg too and they are still very mushy however they taste amazing. I served them on a toasted piece of bread with mustard and tomato and it was SO YUMMY!!:D - 12/13/11

    The taste was pretty good but the texture wasn't. They cooked fine on the outside but the inside was completely mushy. I cooked them longer on low heat and they wouldn't firm up. I even used less egg white. I might use even less next time. And maybe a little less tomato sauce. - 6/20/11

    Sorry about the mushiness, some tins of tuna seem to be watery and it's hard to get all the liquid out. These are soft burgers, maybe leave the egg white out completely and use just enough tomato sauce to bind.
