I needed a Lenten lunch and this met the bill. The only 2 things that I did different was to put the mixture on party pumpernickel bread and grilled it on top of the stove, and I used a mixture of cheeses instead of Mozzarella. The flavors blended together nicely and they looked elegant. Even my DH, who is not crazy about tuna, ask me to make them again. Thanks for sharing.
Very good. I made this for lunch, but it would also be good as an appetizer. Instead of grilling, I toasted the bread, then topped it with the tuna mixture and broiled until heated through and the cheese was melted. I used dried onions, dried parsley and garlic powder because that's what I had on hand.
Pretty good, but I didn't have the chance to melt the cheese it since I brought it when I packed a lunch. I was still good, but I would imagine that it would taste even better grilled. Thanks
