  • [Pictures] Disneyland Pirate Ship Restaurant Tunaburger Recipe

    Hey everyone. A co-worker who has been going to Disneyland since she was little gave me one of her two placemats she has kept over the years from when she ate at the Pirate Ship Restaurant at Disneyland. Although she doesn't remember exactly when she got it it had to have been pre-1969 when Chicken of the Sea dropped sponsorship according to Yesterland. Thought it was kinda cool that it has the tunaburger recipe on it. I have made it several times now and it tastes great.

    Hope your all enjoy as well.

    Many thanks for posting this! Brings back great memories of the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship in Fantasyland.

      Tunaburger? That actually sounds pretty tasty.

        Bleh, I hate tuna. But I'd love for the ship and skull to come back to Tom Sawyer's Island...
        In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

          I thought I remembered that there was melted cheddar cheese on it.

                  Too bad my vision isn't good enough to read the recipe.

                      I was not a tunafish fan, having had so many tuna sandwiches in my school lunchbox over the years, but I loved the Tuna Burgers at the pirate ship. I also remember a cheese slice.

                            Sorry for not having the photo at a higher resolution. It was a much higher quality scan but I was fighting with the uploader and this was the quality I could get the forums to take. They do taste amazing.

                            A small piece of trivia from what I have researched is the Tuna-burger was advertised with no cheese (as the recipe describes), and that the addition of cheese on a menu wasn't added until Chicken of the Sea dropped sponsorship in 1969 (although maybe it could be asked for, I am not sure on that). When I asked my co-worker about the placemat she said that it was from the early 60's. I did some more research and found a second placemat from the late 60's which shows the Tuna-burger with a much more Big Mac design (Big Mac first was made public in 1967), but still no cheese.

                            The backside had the following recipe:

                            Mix one can of Chicken of the Sea Tune with 1 tablespoon of chopped onion, a quarter cup of chopped celery, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and two tablespoons of mayonnaise. Slice 4 hamburger buns (with seeds) into 3 horizontal sections. Spread tuna mixture onto the middle bun slice.

                            Now mix 2 more tablespoons of mayonnaise with 2 tablespoons of catsup; spread that onto the bottom bun slice and cover with a layer of sweet pickle slices. Put all the sections together to make a "triple decker" sandwich.

                            Wrap it up in Kaiser aluminum foil and bake in the oven (at 375) for 15 minutes.

                            And theres also an earlier placemat from the 50's (Farm 5 @ FlickrRiver)

                            I love Disney and food. I thought it would be fun someday to research the old menu's and get the old recipe's from Yesterland eateries at Disney.

                              That makes zero sense.

                                Thanks! I love collecting Disneyland recipes. I wasn't born around the time, but it's nice to have a piece of this nostalgia.

                                It is possible to get a larger size/resolution of this placemat?

                                  That's a great marketing technique. Give the guests the recipe so they can go home and buy the product. It makes them feel like the only way to make an authentic Chicken of the Sea Tunaburger is by buying only the Chicken of the Sea brand.

                                    And by only w it in Kaiser Aluminum.


                                    Thanks for posting just the same, it was neat to see that placemat. I'll bet there aren't too many of those around anymore. I forgot all about the tunaburger they served onboard that ship. ( And apparently how the skull and ship were on Tom Sawyer's Island. )

                                      Hey I am at work right now but when I get home I will upload a higher resolution version of the placemat tonight.

                                      As for the Ship an Skull Rock my Disneyland geography might be a bit off but if I remember it was where Dumbo is now and was no where near the Rivers of America (Tom Sawyer Island).

                                        Because of this thread, I made fried tuna patties last night to top my salad. It was so tasty, but my apartment smelled like tuna for hours.
