Tuna Burgers

This is a story of the misfortunate tuna burgers. Which hubs was leery about. Ever since I made carrot burgers two years ago, he is skeptical of any recipe that is titled "____ Burger". Especially when ground beef isn't the main ingredient.

Well, I guess I failed him again. I'm pretty sure after this tuna burger fiasco he will never again eat anything entitled "____ Burger". The first recipe, for Carrot Burgers...not my fault. The recipe was just rotten and I was attempting to be frugal with a meatless meal. This recipe...okay, kinda my fault. No, totally my fault. Because I made a substitution. And when hubs found out that bit of information he responded with "why do you do that?" I guess that means I make too many substitutions for the sake of frugality. Maybe I should stop that.

I found this recipe in one of the cookbooks I got from the cleaning out of my grandma's house, and I'm sure that as written, this recipe is quite tasty. Maybe even downright good. Just don't make a substitution like I did.

Don't do it!!!


...1 can tuna
...3/4 c. salad dressing (this is where I messed up. I read it as actual salad dressing. Upon reviewing the recipe after eating this disaster, I realized that they probably meant the mayonnaise like salad dressing. Yeah. Use the mayonaise. Not actual salad dressing. ESPECIALLY not 3 Cheese Ranch Dressing. Don't buy that stuff, ever. BLECH!!)
...1/2 c. diced pickles
...1 c. shredded cheese
Mix together all ingredients and spread on a slice of bread. Spread a second slice with butter. Place on a baking sheet and place under broiler until tops are browned and cheese is melted.

Hey, I always say "they can't all be showstoppers!" LOL At least you tried.
Kudos to you for posting a semi-failure. Mine usually go straight into the garbage can & never see the light of day or blog. :D

This was such a cute post. I've been there. All the time. I tried to make Reeses Peanut butter bars last week and got boo'd out of the kitchen. I ended up eating them myself (I like 20 pounds of icing).
Even Bandwidth (who has the touch) had a mishap this week with kielbasa.

In the beginning my hubby ate quite a few not so stellar attempts (and burnt offerings), lol. Sounds like you've kept your sense of humor about you and you know the old saying, try, try again :)
