Canned tuna and avocado patties, smothered with the most delicious Thai curry mayo, topped off with a fried egg – all in a burger.
Whoa, that’s a lot on a burger!
Seriously? It is YUMMMMMM!
That mayo…. is so darn tasty.
The best part? It is all healthy ingredients (ok, except the mayo)
The taste of Thai curry paste differs by the brand, so feel free to use your favorite. I like Thai kitchen brand, because it is can be found in most super markets and Amazon. Above all, it’s super delicious.
This burger is a hearty (with heart healthy ingredients) one after a long tiring day or healthy and filling weekend lunch, when all you have is errands, errands and more errands.
