Are you craving a tuna sandwich, but wondering how to prepare a version that is healthy and just as tasty? Check out my recipe below for Tuna Melts! As a kid, this recipe of my mom's was a popular one in our house. This recipe is now a favorite of my husbands so we have these quite often! I recently decided to play around with the recipe to put my own healthful spin on an old recipe.
- 1 whole grain english muffin
- 1 can tuna in water
- 2 tbsp. plain greek yogurt (greek yogurt is a great substitute for mayonnaise, it is lower in calories and fat, as well as high in protein)
- Dash of celery salt
- 1 tomato, sliced
- 1/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Split English muffin into two halves. Mix tuna with Greek yogurt and celery salt. Spoon half of tuna mixture onto one half of English muffin. Top with one slice of tomato, and half of the cheese. Repeat with second half of English muffin. Place muffins on baking pan and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted, browning, and muffin is toasted.
I served these with a side of corn & a salad that consisted of romaine lettuce, spinach & kale. Yum!
