Albacore Tuna Muffins

Kim Biegacki


These tuna muffins make for a wonderful light lunch and very festive looking too.
The muffins are moist with the veggies inside and chewy at the same time because of the tuna. They are wonderful! Plus, they are low carb and healthy too.
The cucumber salad went perfect with them. I actually dipped my muffin into some of the sweet cucumber sauce. :-)

How to Make Albacore Tuna Muffins


  • 1Cut up all your veggies. Drain your tuna and place in a bowl and flake the tuna with a fork.
  • 2Then, add your veggies and seasonings and mix it all together. Now, crack your egg and whisk it well and then add to your mixture.
  • 3Scoop into a greased muffin pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

    [You could make these into mini muffins and serve as appetizers too.] I am not sure on the time they would have to cook though. Next time, I will try it and add the info here.
  • 4Remove muffins from tin and add a little more cheese and some herb for garnish.
  • 5I served my muffins with a cucumber salad.

    It is a spice mixture that you can buy at most grocery stores. It has rosemary, fennel, savory, thyme, basil, tarragon, dill weed, oregano, lavender, chevril, and marjarom.
