Tuna Artichoke Melts Recipe

Publisher Photo
After sampling a similar open-faced sandwich at a restaurant, I created a lovely lemon-seasoned tuna salad with artichoke hearts. Serve it on the patio for lunch with a friend.—Evelyn Basinger, Linville, Virginia

Good, love the artichokes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2012

I love artichokes and this recipe was a nice surprise. The English muffins offered a nice 'crunch' to each bite and all the toppings blended together well. A great week day recipe.

(5 Stars for me is an instant classic / serve to company meal.)

These were delicious! I will definitely make them again. Great for a quick weeknight meal and then enjoy the leftover mix for lunch the next day!

MY REVIEW

When I went to elementary school in Earlham Iowa, they used to serve these once in awhile for our lunches, minus the artichokes. I have always wanted to find this recipe as love it. Will make this again and again as it is delicious. That and a salad and I'm a very happy farm gal;)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2012

There wasn't anything extra special about this, but it was good. I would maybe add a little Nature's Seasons seasoning blend next time to add a little punch to the flavor. I loved the warm gooeyness of it. I used a 5 oz. can of tuna and Thomas' Light English Muffins to lighten the calories and increase the fiber...it came to 308 calories this way. My 12 year old son liked it, too.
