To make this recipe, just mash the avocado together with the tuna. Then, add a squeeze or two of fresh lime juice plus salt and pepper to taste. This tuna melt recipe comes together like a dream. All it takes is a few minutes and you’ve got yourself a delicious and better for you lunch option.
Top each muffin half with a portion of avocado and tuna mix, top with a slice of fresh tomato, and sprinkle with cheese. That’s it.
This recipe is listed as less than 30 minutes, but it is more like 15.
Think of all the ways you can make a tuna melt with Blue Harbor Tuna:
- Add a little chopped red onion for more color and crunch.
- Skip the tomato and add sliced mushrooms.
- Save a few more calories and swap the jack cheese for parmesan.
- Cutting out all bread? Replace the muffin with a slice of sweet potato (this will increase your cooking time).
- Is it just me, or does a fried egg on top of this sound amazing?
