Tuna Melt Sliders
Land O'Lakes Comfort Classics Magazine

A quick crisp sandwich, upscale from a plain tuna sandwich.  The burger has a nice flavor. Cheese and a slice of tomato adding an extra twist.  

1 cup dried breadcrumbs
2 (5 ounce) cans white albacore tuna in water, drained
1/4 cup shredded carrot
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
4 slices of Land O'Lakes American Cheese
4 regular size hamburg buns or 8 dollar size buns
lettuce leaves

Using a medium size bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs in the bowl, placing the other 1/2 cup in a pie plate to coat the tuna burgers after they have been shaped. Add the tuna, and break it up, the shredded carrot, the sliced green onions, seasonings, and the lightly beaten egg. Mix this all together and shape into 8 dollar size burgers big enough for the small rolls or into 4 regular size burgers. Sprinkle the remaining bread crumbs onto both sides of the burgers and pressing so it adheres. Using your fry pan or electric skillet cook the burgers until they are lightly brown on both sides in butter. Butter the rolls and toast them on the grill. About 1 minute before they are ready place each tuna burger with a diagonally cut slice of cheese. Allow the cheese to melt then serve on the buns with mayo, slice tomato and leaves of lettuce.
