Tuna & Cheese Melts

Written By steeve adam on Friday, 19 May 2017 | May 19, 2017

Canned, water-packed tuna is a bodybuilding staple: it’s an excellent source of 
high-quality, virtually fat-free protein. And there’s no real cooking needed - just open a can or foil packet and you’re set. But it can be drytasting, and boring to eat day-after-day. Tuna & Cheese melts are one way to help make tuna more interesting, that are simple and quick to prepare .


  •  6 oz. can of water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  •  1 egg white
  •  2 tbsp. oatmeal
  •  2 tbsp. of diced onion
  •  1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  •  2 tsp. part-skim mozzarella cheese
  •  salt and pepper to taste


 Blend all the ingredients (except the mozarella) in a bowl. Pre-heat a pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Divide the mixture and form into 2 patties. Cook one side until brown (not long) then turn - when the second side is nearly done, sprinkle cheese over it. Place under a broiler for about 1 minute tops to melt the cheese. Serve as part of a sandwich, or with a salad and serving of French ‘Un-Fries’.
