  • 2 cans chunk light tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise, divided
  • 1/3 cup roasted red peppers, chopped, divided
  • 1/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning, divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 hamburger buns or English muffins, toasted
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices tomato

Combine tuna, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, half the roasted red peppers, celery, onion and 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning in a medium bowl. Break up any larger pieces of tuna until the mixture is uniform and holds together. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise, the remaining peppers and 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning in a bowl.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Form the tuna mixture into four burgers. Cook until heated through and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Spread the top half of each bun (or English muffin) with red pepper mayonnaise and place a burger, lettuce and tomato on the bottom half. Serve immediately.
