Made Pioneer Woman Tuna Melts
Yes, you heard me right...tuna melts. I have mentioned this dish to several friends and received curled lips but when they get a taste the lips start smacking! This is not your typical tuna salad on cold, triangle shaped bread at a baby shower. It is Pioneer Woman and amazing!
5 oz. canned tuna
1/4 cups finely chopped red onion
1/4 cups finely chopped red bell pepper
1 whole, fresh jalapeno, finely chopped
2 whole hard boiled eggs, chopped
6 whole sweet gerkins, sliced
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp. dijon mustard
Splash of pickle juice
Salt & pepper to taste
6 whole english muffins, split into halves
12 slices cheese, Provolone was tasty!
Combine tune with onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, eggs, and gerkins.
Stir in mayo, dijon and pickle juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place english muffin halves on a large cookie sheet. Spoon tuna salad on each of the twelve english muffin halves. I ended up only making 10 as I was generous with the tuna on each half. Use the spoon to flatten the spread. Put pan into the oven for 5 minutes, then briefly remove and lay a slice of cheese on each muffin. Return to oven and turn on broiler. Watch carefully to avoid burning the yummy cheese; bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve.
