Sometimes I end up running around on weekend days, grabbing snacks here and there, and never really sitting down to an actual meal. These Lemon Thyme Tuna Burgers from Green Lite Bites took less than 15 minutes to make, and made a balanced meal with some whole grain crackers and grapes.
I modified the original recipe just a bit, adding some diced carrot and using a whole egg instead of just the egg white. I may have added a little too much lemon juice because the mixture was quite wet. The burgers fell apart a little in the pan, but still tasted great. And after a good meal, I was ready to tackle the rest of my day.

1/3 c. oats
1 T lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Form into 2 patties, and place on a pan coated with cooking spray. Cook on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Flip burger carefully, and cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side.
