I don’t know what possessed me to make tuna melt muffins yesterday; I guess I was just in a savory muffin mood. I wanted all the flavors in a tuna melt baked into a muffin. I would have added some sliced scallions to the muffins, but I wanted to use ingredients that I already had in the house:

*Cooking Tip: Tuna Melt Muffins

  • 1 cup multigrain baking mix
  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1–2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • pinch of Old Bay seasoning

Preheat oven to 400˚F. Grease a 6 cup muffin pan. Mix all ingredients until you have a wet batter. If the mixture feels too dry, add a little more milk. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan and sprinkle with more shredded cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until muffin tops are nice and golden. Serve with a little spicy tartar sauce or butter. I think these muffins would also be good with some capers, chopped dill pickles, fresh dill or olives added into the batter. Yummers!
