Mini Post - Tuna Melt Boats

Tuna Boat Melts - Brilliant!

Some peoples kids I tell you! Why can't I come up with brilliant ideas like this? So smart and so delicious.

Perfect if you are on a low carb kick or even just for a healthy meal or snack! I mentioned before that I am working on healthier meals to keep my cholesterol down and this is perfect.  I actually got in trouble from my Mom for posting the Bacon Salt post (shhh, don't tell Mom but it is really good). Geez! I'm 42 and she still scolds me and corrects my grammar. I wouldn't trade it for the world because that shows that she loves me.  Love you Mom. Don't ever stop.

I might actually put this on a piece of English Muffin toast as well.
 My Mom used to make something similar to this with an English Muffin and it was really good. 
But for crying out loud! Don't use the Bacon Salt!  (or do)

Back to the yummy healthy Recipe of The Day. Brought to you by Yes I want Cake. Nice job and I want cake too, but don't tell Mom.

  • 10 oz canned white albacore tuna
