Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a small frying pan over low heat. Add onion and garlic and saute over low heat until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in seafood seasoning, cilantro, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat.

  • Combine tuna and mayonnaise in a bowl. Add the sauteed mixture from the frying pan and blend well with a fork.

  • Place all 6 halved English muffins on a cookie sheet. Spoon on tuna mixture, dividing it evenly between each muffin. Top each with a slice of tomato; add a slice of American cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you are not a fan of English muffins, try bagels or any thick-sliced bread such as an Italian or French baguette.

Use your favorite cheese--I like American or provolone.

Loved this and I'm not even a huge fan of tuna. The flavor was excellent and these were simple. My only complaint was in the English muffins. They really need toasted prior to adding the tuna mixture. Easy fix. Read More
