Smoked tuna melts

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 3–4 minutes

Smoked tuna melts

1 pouch (5 ounces) hickory-smoked chunk light tuna (plain, water-packed tuna may also be used)
1 green onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 whole wheat English muffins, split and lightly toasted
4 large tomato slices
Coarse-ground black pepper
4 slices (1/2 ounce each) part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place tuna in a bowl and flake with a fork. Add green onion and mayonnaise; stir to mix well. Top each English muffin half with a slice of tomato and one-fourth of the tuna mixture. Sprinkle lightly with pepper and top with a slice of cheese. Warm in the oven until cheese melts, about 3–4 minutes. Tuna mixture may be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to make melts.
