Tuna Sliders

I recently found this recipe for Tuna Sliders on, where else, Pinterest and have been dying to make them ever since. They were simple and came together in a snap. 

For the Sliders-
  • 2 5 oz cans of Tuna in water, drained
  • 2 chopped Scallions
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons Plain Bread Crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

For the Tartar Sauce-
  • 1/3 Cup of Mayonnaise (I used low-fat)
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Dill
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped Dill Pickle (or Pickle Relish)
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

6 Hawaiian Sweet Slider Rolls
Roma Tomato
Lettuce Leaves (I used Bib Lettuce)

For the Sliders-
  • In a large bowl combine tuna, scallions, egg, seasonings and bread crumbs
  • Mixture should be thick and hold together when formed into patties. It they do not, then add more bread crumbs.
  • Form into 6 even patties (I used an ice cream scoop)
  • On medium heat, coat a large skillet with olive oil*
  • Place patties into hot pan and cook for four minutes per side or until brown

For the Tartar Sauce-
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to use

Makes 6 Sliders and 12 Tablespoons Tartar Sauce (I doubled the slider recipe, but kept the tartar recipe the same and we had the perfect amount of sauce for 12 sliders)

*The recipe that I was using called for Land O' Lakes Sauté Express Starter, which I did use when I made mine, however, I did not like the outcome from it. It burned and clumped up in the pan. So I would suggest just using a little olive oil to cook the patties instead and adding a bit of lemon pepper seasoning to the patty mixture.
