tuna stuffed tomatoes.

this post is brought to you by ~ italian tuna.

you do not need to use this imported tuna i’m crazy about, labeled “tonno”, but i highly recommend you at least try it once.  i’ve talked about it before, and here i am mentioning it again.  it’s SUBLIME.

what?  you didn’t think canned tuna could be sublime?  well, then you REALLY have to try this tuna.

it has a gold label, and is usually on the bottom shelf.  it costs more than the other stuff, but look, you’re still having an amazing lunch for only a few dollars, even if you buy the good stuff.  so treat yo-self.

and since i can’t have any crackers or bread with my tuna today, here’s an easy take on a stuffed tomato.  i’m absolutely nuts over it.


‘gredients: (these are just suggestions ~ you can use whatever you like in a tuna salad.  celery, green onion, boiled eggs ~ whatever)

  1. one can tuna (italian if you deserve, and you do)
  2. 1 tablespoon of your favorite mustard
  3. 3-4 tablespoons chopped pickled items (pickles, sauerkraut, pickled banana peppers)
  4. 1 tablespoon capers
  5. salt, pepper, celery seed, dill
  6. frank’s hot sauce
  7. 2 large, ripe tomatoes
  8. chopped cilantro


  • preheat the oven to broil.
  • cut two tomatoes in half and level the bottom half, so it stands up.  cut out the flesh and chop it up.  put it in a mixing bowl.
  • add the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl, except for the cilantro.  mix together and stuff the tomatoes with the mixture.
  • broil in the oven for 10 minutes.  top with the cilantro.

too easy for words!!!
