Betty Crocker's Heart Healthy Cookbook shares a recipe! Hearty tuna sandwiches - delicious seafood dinner ready in just 20 minutes!
can (6 ounces) solid white tuna in water, drained and flaked
cup chopped celery
tablespoons finely chopped onion
teaspoon grated lemon peel, if desired
cup fat-free mayonnaise or salad dressing
whole wheat English muffins, split and lightly toasted
cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)
Heat oven to 350°. Mix tuna, celery, onion, lemon peel and mayonnaise in medium bowl.
Spread about 3 tablespoons tuna mixture on each English muffin half. Top each with tomato slice; sprinkle with cheese. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are thoroughly heated.
“I am not afraid to alter recipes when possible—I use reduced-fat cheese, no-fat cheese, turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni, chicken for beef. Once I started doing that, I felt more confident trying it in other recipes.” Nancy D.
It’s never too early to include kids in heart-healthy eating, so they learn good habits from day one. Ask them to help plan and prepare dinner to get them interested in foods and what they eat. In this easy recipe, they can mix the tuna and mayonnaise and make their own sandwiches. (You may need to help them use the oven, though.)
