Gone are the days when tuna melts were laden with fat and served on slabs of bread with a pile of French fries – this recipe gives you all of that comforting taste without the guilt. Oh and did I mention that it only takes a few minutes to make? Serve your healthy tuna melts up with a side of whole grain rice and steamed veggies for an all around winner of a meal.

Servings: 2

Here’s what you need…

  • 6 oz can of albacore tuna (in water), drained and flaked
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tablespoons oatmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons diced onion
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons low-fat shredded cheese (optional, or if your plan permits)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Blend all of the ingredients (not the cheese) in a bowl. Pre-heat a frying pan and coat with cooking spray. Form two patties.
  2. Cook one side until brown and then turn. When the second side is nearly done, sprinkle cheese over it.
