Introductionlooks like a muffin, tastes like a dream. Great for lunch, but fancy enough to serve for brunch with friends! Really - these are yummy, and I don't even love tuna fish :) looks like a muffin, tastes like a dream. Great for lunch, but fancy enough to serve for brunch with friends! Really - these are yummy, and I don't even love tuna fish :)
6 oz chunk light tuna, well drained (I use those foil pouches)
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup finely diced celery
2 T finely diced red pepper
2 T finely diced green pepper
3 oz cream cheese, softened (30 sec in microwave)
3 eggs, beaten
3 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
Creole or Bay seasoning to taste (abt 1/4 tsp)
Dash cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tsp baking powder (use kind w/o aluminum)
spray muffin tin with no stick oil (or perhaps use paper liners - these were just sl. tricky to get out w/oil)
Use a fork to mix all ingredients together well in mixing bowl
Spoon into muffin cups - Ok to fill pretty high - they don't rise that much.
Bake 35 min or so, until knife comes out clean.
Cool and enjoy!
Makes 6 yummy muffins.
Serving suggestion - add a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream plus sprinkle of chives or dill to each muffin.
Serve with a nice mixed greens salad and lemon juice/olive oil dressing.
Serving Size: makes 6 muffins
Number of Servings: 6
