Begin your culinary journey with two cans of premium tuna, drained to perfection, providing a protein-rich foundation for our melts. Replace traditional mayonnaise with Greek yogurt, introducing a creamy texture without compromising on nutritional value. Infuse depth of flavor with finely chopped red onion, crisp celery, zesty Dijon mustard, and a hint of fresh lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper, ensuring a harmonious blend of savory notes.

Assembly and Toasting: Artfully split and toast four whole grain English muffins, setting the stage for the symphony of flavors to unfold. Each muffin half becomes a canvas for the rich tuna mixture, skillfully spread to ensure a balanced distribution of ingredients. The toasty foundation lends a delightful crunch, complementing the velvety tuna medley.

Cheese Infusion: Elevate the culinary experience by crowning each tuna-covered muffin with a generous sprinkle of high-quality shredded mozzarella cheese. As it bakes in the oven at 400°F (200°C), the cheese transforms into a molten blanket, enveloping the tuna in a luscious embrace.

Optional Freshness: For a burst of freshness and vibrancy, consider adorning your Gourmet Whole Grain Tuna Melts with slices of succulent tomatoes and crisp spinach leaves. These vibrant additions not only enhance the visual appeal but also introduce a refreshing contrast to the warm, cheesy goodness.
