Life can't be about all beef. "Where's The Beef?" questions are fewer nowadays due to an influx of health concerns, as well as those that are watching their weight. The Longmeadow Farm is following suit and will openly and warmly embrace these new "burgers" to grace our "Saturday Lunch at the Farm" crowd. I wanted to produce a light(ish) tuna burger that made Dennis, Jerry, Uncle Dick, and my Dad feel as light as a Spring beetle floating around on a wind current after lunch. This recipe did it. Everyone was full, but not so full they wanted to clamber off to the backyard hammock, and pull their hat over their face. This gave them enough energy to have their giddy-up for all the many maelstroms that would undoubtedly follow them around for the afternoon. Go ahead, try them "Maryland" style with the use of our beloved "Old Bay Seasoning" and get ready to work hard this afternoon. Can be easily doubled for a big crowd.
