This week is the last Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter recipe! We’re wrapping up the Weeknight Wins Blogger Challenge. We hope you’ve had fun, and tried some easy recipe ideas from our Pinterest Board. If you haven’t pinned yet, now is your last chance to pin away!
This weeks’ theme is Express Yourself! So, I went a little out of the box and came up with these awesome Tuna Lemon Pepper Sliders. They are SO simple to make and taste awesome! They can be made in 20 or 30 minutes and all start with canned tuna! Suck on that, pocketbook!
I cook these on the stovetop in some Lemon Pepper Sauté® Express Sauté Starter and serve them on Hawaiian sweet rolls with lettuce, tomato and a little homemade tartar sauce. My husband LOVED these and surprisingly so did my 4-year-old. Like we didn’t have to bribe her to finish. She just gobbled them up. That’s how you know this is an awesome recipe. 🙂
Also, make sure you use dill pickles in the homemade tartar sauce and not the sweet kind. Sweet pickles should be illegal. That is all.
Here are the details:
Start by making your patties. All that goes into these are two cans of drained tuna, an egg, scallions, salt, pepper, Old Bay Seasoning and bread crumbs (or ground oats). Stir this up and form into six sliders that are about ¾-inch thick.
Now we can put two of these lemon pepper Sauté Express® Sauté Starter squares into a skillet and melt them over medium heat.
And, for fun…here’s one last giveaway from Land O’Lakes!
