This video from Nancy Fox at SkinnyKitchen.com shows how she makes her own Weight Watchers Skinny Tuna Melt:
Skinny Open-Faced Tuna Melt for Two
- 2 light multigrain English muffins, split into halves
- 1 (5 ounce) can water packed chunk white albacore tuna, well drained
- 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional)
- 1-1/2 tablespoons pickle relish
- 4 large tomato slices
- 4 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- Preheat broiler. (I use my toaster oven.)
- Lightly toast the muffin halves then place them on a foiled lined baking sheet that has been lightly coated with nonstick spray.
- In a small bowl, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard (if using) and relish until well blended.
- Spread the tuna mixture evenly between the English muffin halves. Top each with a slice of tomato and tablespoon of the shredded cheese.
- Broil until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes.
