This is actually a recipe I came across while working on one of the posts for our back to school series coming up, I decided I’d put the full recipe of it on a separate post since it seemed too long. So here you go.
4 English muffins
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 ½ 6oz ( 170g) cans albacore tuna, drained
2 tbsp ketchup
6 tbsp mayonnaise
grated zest of 1 lemon
4 large, thin slices of sharp Cheddar cheese, halved diagonally
Position a broiler rack 6in (15cm) from the heat and preheat. Split the muffins and toast.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the red pepper, scallions, and shallots. Cook, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Add the tuna, breaking up the chunks with a fork. Cook for about 1 minute, until the tuna is heated through. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the ketchup, 2 tbsp of the mayonnaise, and the lemon zest.
Spread the remaining mayonnaise over the cut sides of the muffins. Spread 4 muffin halves with the tuna mixture and arrange the cheese triangles on top.
Grill until the cheese melts. Top with the remaining 4 muffin halves. Serve at once.
I actually haven’t had the chance to try this one out yet, so let me know how it works out for you guys. Good luck and happy baking.
Until next time,
