Here's a real treat for tuna (and tomato) lovers! Try topping these broiled tomatoes with cheddar cheese for a different taste.


  • 2 cans (6-1/8 ounces each) water-packed tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 medium fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Sour cream, optional


  1. In a bowl, separate tuna into very small pieces. Add bread crumbs, onion, mustard, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning and egg; mix well. In a medium saucepan, cook mixture for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Set aside. Slice off 1/2 in. of each tomato top. Leaving a 1/4-in.-thick shell, scoop out pulp and discard. Spoon tuna mixture into shells and place in a baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and brown lightly under broiler. Garnish with sour cream if desired.
