Tuna Melt Deluxe

This is a twist on traditional tuna melts.  The added chopped jalapeno doesn't add spice but really enhances the flavor.  Everything is wonderful about this would be great on a regular sandwich too.  I adapted this recipe is from   -Kristin

 2 cans of tuna, drained
1/4 c. finely chopped red onion
1/4 c. finely chopped red bell pepper
1 whole jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
2 whole hard boiled eggs, chopped
6 whole sweet Gherkins, diced
1/3 c. mayonnaise 
2 T. Dijon mustard 
Splash of pickle juice 
Salt And Pepper, to taste
6 whole English Muffins Split 
12 slices cheese (Provolone, American, Muenster)

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Combine all ingredients in first row.
  • Place English muffins halves on a large cookie sheet.
  • Divide tuna mixture up between the muffins.
  • Top with cheese.
  • Bake for 5 minutes.  Then turn on broiler and keep in them in there till the tops are lightly browned.  Keep a close eye on them so the tops don't burn!
