  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp dried onion flakes or 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 5 ounce cans tuna
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 TBSP olive oil


  • Mix together cottage cheese, egg, dried onion, ginger, garlic powder, and salt. Stir in oats, tuna, and sesame seeds. Stir together until it's combined. Shape into 4 patties.
  • Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and swirl the oil in the skillet. Add the four patties into the skillet. Cook until golden brown on each side, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a plate, and enjoy! Great with lemon juice or miso dressing


*Refrigerating the patties before cooking helps them hold together. It's not a mandatory step, but the burgers might not hold together as well.
