My neighbor Jayne gave me some gorgeous brandywine tomatoes from her garden and, to rise to the occasion, I decided to stuff the tomatoes using my last can of solid albacore tuna from France. Well worth it!
I topped the tomatoes and made a shell for the stuffing by scraping out some of the pulp with a spoon.
I made my usual tuna salad, filled the shells, sprinkled with grated cheese and popped them into the microwave for about a 1 1/2 minutes until the cheese melted. A little sprinkle of smoked paprika and it was lunch time!
Tuna Stuffed Brandywine Tomato
2 large brandywine tomatoes
1 400 gram (about 1 3/4 cups) can of solid albacore tuna in water, flaked
1/4 onion, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 tbsp yellow mustard
2 heaping tbsp mayonnaise (use a soup spoon for this measurement)
Cut the tops off the tomatoes and remove the pulp with a spoon to create a shell.
Mix the tuna, onion, eggs, mustard and mayonnaise together in a bowl. Stuff the tomato shells with this mixture, sprinkle with cheese and microwave for 1 1/2 minute. Sprinkle with a little smoked paprika and enjoy.
