A simple meal, produces up to 12 wheels depending on quantity of tuna and willingness to experiment with the volume.
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Prep time: 5 minutes
A "complete" meal: 30 minutes.
- 4 to 6 English muffins
- 2 cans of tuna in water
- 2.5 tablespoons of mayo
- 1 bag of shredded three cheese mix, meltier the better.
- Some kind of dressing for dipping. Ranch is great, ketchup, anything really.
- Preheat (or don't, the time only changes slightly) to 350F
- Get a nice baking sheet and put on some foil for easy cleanup of spilled cheese. Bonus crispy cheese source.
- Bring out a bowl, enough to hold two cans of tuna and some mayo. A normal dinner bowl works ok.
- Any extras you want to add. This reciepe isn't set in stone, just html.
The steps to produce a tuna wheel
- Open and drain the tuna cans. Avoid cats who will be summoned.
- Add the tuna to your bowl of choice.
- Add the mayo to you bowl of choice.
- Mix together the tuna and mayo.
- The consistency should be fairly close to mayo, and not very runny.
- Split an english muffin in half.
- Spread on some of the tuna mix on one of the halves. Try to estimate it as 1/8th (for 4 muffins) or 1/12th (for 6 muffins) the volume of material. You could also weigh the mix and proportion it this way, but this isn't an exact science.
- Generously coat the tuna mix layered muffin's top with shredded cheese.
- Add to your baking sheet. Add a bit more cheese, it truly is a cheese mountain.
- Repeat until your baking sheet or other device is full.
- Add the full baking sheet to oven and heat for 15 (+2 if not preheated) minutes, until the cheese is browning.
- Remove from the oven.
- Let cool for a few minutes. Will be hot and melty.
- Add to your plates and add your dressing on the side. You can also add on top.
And with that, you have a tuna wheel meal. And maybe some spare english muffins and cheese if you underestimated the tuna volume.
