Quick and easy to make for lunch or dinner! My husband asked me to make him a tuna melt. I'd never eaten one (I don't like tuna except for grilled tuna steaks), let alone made one, so I tried this recipe from The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook. I've made this for him a few times now, and he says they're good! He's not big on English muffins so we normally use whole wheat toast instead.
- 1⁄3 cup celery, chopped
- 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1 (12 ounce) can tuna in water, drained
- 4 English muffins, split and toasted
- 1 tomatoes, cut into 8 slices
- 2 ounces low-fat swiss cheese, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
- Preheat broiler.
- Combine first 6 ingredients and spread 3 tablespoons of the mixture on each muffin half.
- Top each half with 1 tomato slice and 1 tablespoon cheese.
- Broil 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
I guess we eat a lot--this was not enough mixture for four english muffins. It was good, quick, and easy. I followed the recipe exactly except used a hot pepper blend for the pepper. Donna
Great lunch for a snowy day!
Tuna melts are one of my ultimate comfort foods and I loved this healthier version. The use of dijon mustard and fresh lime juice was a great idea--added slight tang, but not too much. A bonus--this is very easy to make and everyone in the family loved it. Thanks for posting.
