Sometimes I’ll make something and then get obsessed, making it over and over and over again.
It happened twice last week. First with The Most Amazing Bowl of Oatmeal EVER! I now have to stop myself from eating it every single morning. I decided to make a deal with myself and alternate eggs and oatmeal for breakfast from now on. Today was an omelet. Tomorrow you can bet I’ll be going to town on some banana, peanut butter, and chocolate oatmeal.
The other was this tuna burger. I have 2 other Tuna Burger ideas posted and every once in awhile I’ll get inspired to mix things up a bit. This time I skipped processing the oats to save time and I flavored the burger with some lemon juice and dried thyme. It was a great combination and a fabulously light lunch.
Here’s what I did…
- 5oz Can Of Light Tuna packed in Water drained well
- 1 egg white
- 30g of Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/4 cup of celery chopped small
- 1/4 cup of onion chopped small
- Pinch of Kosher Salt
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
Put all the ingredients in a bowl…
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Form the tuna mixture into 2 equal size patties and add them directly to the skillet. The patties will set in the pan and may not stay formed unless cooked.
Cook on one side for 3-4 minutes then flip carefully.
Cook for about another 2 minutes until warmed through.
Remove from skillet.
My favorite way to eat these are on a whole wheat sandwich thin with a bed of baby spinach and a small squirt of ketchup.
I’ve also been know just to take a fork to them. :)
Here’s the nutritional information. It does not include “the bun.”
