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
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 1 can (6 ounces) tuna, drained
- 1 celery rib, chopped
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- Dash pepper
- 6 slices bread
- 3 cherry tomatoes
- 6 parsley sprigs
- In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Spread about 1/3 cupful on three slices of bread; top with remaining bread. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally to form wings. Place two halves on each plate, with crust-covered corners touching, to form a butterfly. Place a cherry tomato above wings for head With a sharp knife, cut two small slits on each side of tomato; insert parsley sprigs for antennae. Serve immediately.
