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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Combine first 6 ingredients and spread 3 tablespoons of the mixture on each muffin half.
  3. Top each half with 1 tomato slice and 1 tablespoon cheese.
  4. 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

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.
