New Recipe: Tuna Artichoke Melts

Monday, August 06, 2012

Today I tried a new tuna melt recipe.
I got it from the Taste of Home website.
Here is a link to the original recipe:

According to Taste of Home ~ there is 335 calories in a serving of 2 English Muffin halves.

I however, made mine own version:

I used:

2 5 ounce cans of albacore tuna

2/3 cup chopped canned artichokes (that were drained)

cup olive oil mayonnaise

cup shredded white Mexican cheese

A sprinkle of Tajin Mexican seasoning (which has lime & seasonings in it - the original recipe called for lemon pepper & oregano)

Mixed that all together measured out cup and spread that on 2 English Muffin halves and topped each with 1 Tablespoon of the shredded white Mexican cheese. I then sprinkled some paprika on top of the cheese.

Broiled with racks left as is for 5-7 minutes.

The remaining 1- cups of tuna salad is equal to 3 more servings. I refrigerated that for use later.

I haven't calculated the calories in my version yet.

They were very good! If you like artichoke dip and are a tuna melt eater, you might enjoy these.

And now, I have 3 more lunches ready to go for this week.

    I haven't had a tuna melt in years and I happen to have 8 cans of tuna in my pantry. This will be on my menu this long weekend. Thanks for the idea!

    Sounds good! I'll have to give them a try.

Hope all is going well for you these days.

I need to find a gear and get back into healthy living more consistently. My husband has decided to retire at the end of this month, so life will be taking a new direction soon. Always an adventure... ;)
