“Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.” Hafiz
OK. The above quote has nothing to do with the recipe, unless tuna makes you glad you are alive. But I love that quote and this is my blog, yada yada.
I also need to do a disclaimer about the photo. I did take a photo of three tuna muffins artfully placed on a lovely plate with a garnish of slightly wilted parsley. Then I attempted to download this photo to my laptop, following all the steps I recently used with other photos. It didn’t work.
I tried to email to photo to myself from my iPhone. Somewhere in cyber space there are three photos of tuna muffins floating around. The photo below is of other muffins from other times and I haven’t the foggiest idea what they are. (Labeling things is always a good idea.) But the tuna muffins look a lot like that. My apology to people who are hung up on integrity.
But on to the delicious recipe, which can also be made with salmon!
three 6-ounce cans of tuna, well drained
1 stalk celery, chopped fine
1/2 medium green pepper, chopped fine
3 T onion, yes, chopped fine
1/4 t Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
6 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Mix everything together and spoon the batter into 12 well-greased muffin cups. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until puffed, set, and lightly browned around the edges.
Serve with mayo. Yum!
Makes 12 servings which can be frozen
The cans of tuna I bought were 5 ounce cans. I used them and this worked. Also, the world continued to spin on its axis.
I decided to use cupcake papers thinking that this would save me the trouble of cleaning a muffin pan. Bad idea. Difficult to peel the paper off without destroying some of the integrity of the tuna muffin. When the muffins were cold, this became easier.
Put some of these in my husband’s lunch for him to eat cold. He said they were OK, but he liked the pizza muffins better. Guess I’ll have to give you the recipe for pizza muffins in my next post. Not a problem.
