Yum! Dinner in a matter of minutes. It even had great flavor. It wasn't a boring tuna fish sandwich at all. I liked the fact that with it being open faced that it saved a bit on the calories with only one piece of bread. Tuna is also good for you. It's high in protein, and vitamin B. It's a great source of iron and potassium as well. So that makes this recipe a winner!!
Recipe from Eating Well
12 ounces canned chunk light tuna, drained
1 medium shallot, minced (2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash of hot sauce
Freshly gound pepper, to taste
4 slices whole-wheat bread, toasted
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Combine tuna, shallot, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parsley, salt, hot sauce and pepper in a medium bowl.
Spread 1/4 cup of the tuna mixture on each slice of toast; top with tomato slices and 2 tablespoons cheese.
Place sandwiches on a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
