This recipe originally used canned crab meat, but is a great favorite with children in the "tuna" flavor! Not to mention more economical! My children like it so much, I double the recipe.


  1. Mix tuna with mayo to taste and spread on halved English muffins.
  2. Top with cheddar cheese and put on a cookie sheet.
  3. Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted and muffins are a bit toasted.

I love these things!! I do weekly meal prep and these are super easy to throw together, cook, freeze, and pull out of the freezer throughout the week. Plus, they contain very few ingredients so it's easy to control portion size and determine the amount of macronutrients and calories being consumed. I really like them as a packable lunch. Add a few steamed veggies on the side and you have a nice balance of protein and carbs. And they taste good.

I didn't make this exact recipe but I make basically this I just add a little more to my tuna salad that goes on the english muffin. They are very good kinds to love them they are like an open faced tuna melt. I would suggest toasting the english muffin first if you are worried about consistancy.
