Here's a new way to dress up tuna! Nancy Testin of Dover, Delaware developed the tasty mix, seasoning the tuna with Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and more. Then our kitchen crafters found a neat way to serve it by cutting square slices of bread into triangular butterfly shapes.—Nancy Testin, Dover, Delaware
