“These tuna burgers remind me of my mom, and they're a really good way to take advantage of both my freezer and the cheap day-old rolls at the local bakery. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 whole wheat rolls, preferably crusty ones
  • 2 (195 g) cans tuna fish
  • 1 14 cups grated gouda cheese
  • 12 teaspoon dill
  • 12 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 tablespoons tartar sauce
  • 12 cup chopped onion
  • 12 cup chopped celery
  • hot sauce


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except for rolls and hot sauce. The mixture should be moist. If not, add a bit more tartar sauce.
  2. Cut each roll in half and remove some of the bread inside to make a small indentation. (Skip this step if you are using hamburger-style rolls.) Spoon 1/6th of the mixture into the roll. Drizzle tuna fish mixture with hot sauce, close roll & wrap sandwich in foil. (To reduce onion flavor, cook it beforehand in a bit of oil.).
  3. Bake at 180C/350F for 12 minutes in foil. Remove from foil and allow to bake another 3 minutes or until crusty. Also freezes well.
