Tasty Tuna Burgers

This recipe for Tuna Burgers came from one of my new Weight Watchers buddies.  It is simple but very good.  The parmesan cheese definitely gives it a nice little flavor kick.

She suggests you have it on a thins roll,  or between 2 slices of bread... and I think a pita would work nicely, too.  I have taken the liberty of specifying amounts for a couple of the ingredients.

  • 1 can tuna packed in water, drained (about 4 ounces)
