If you have the time to wait, this is best if let set for an hour or more before cooking.

I thought this seemed so odd but had to try it anyway. I'm glad I did! Very juicy and didn't fall apart. I did let the mixture sit covered in the fridge for about an hour as others mentioned. The flavors melded together wonderfully! We could taste both meats and loved it! I've had requests for these again and my family never asks to have anything. I always have to decide what to make on my own so it's a nice change for something to be requested! Great job Bill and keep your wonderful recipes coming! Read More

I don't know what everyone is raving about. You can DEFINITELY taste the tuna in these burgers. Mine also didn't turn out very moist just a very dense dry burger that stunk like tuna when reheated. I put everything together like it said but something went wrong. I won't be making these ever again - a waste of tuna and hamburger. Read More

The burgers weren't 'bad' but not homeruns (as my husband likes to say). I think we'll stick with Montreal Chicken Seasoning for our burgers. Read More

I tried these because of all the rave reviews. But though the burgers were moist we didn't really taste anything extra special about them. Read More

Had to try this one glad I did. Would have rated it a 5 if it was not so easy to fall apart. Fortunately I resolved that problem by adding an egg and a little seasoned bread crumbs. I will definitely make again I have a few variations in mind. Thanks Bill! Read More
