Mini tuna melts

Print this recipe
As healthy a lifestyle it is, going low-carb does sometimes mean giving up some old favorites. For me, one of the hardest foods to cut out for a little while are sandwiches. I love a good sandwich, and sometimes when I need ultimate comfort food, the one I turn to is the tuna melt. I've been on this low carb kick for a little while and when I couldn't keep my craving at bay anymore, I tried out the recipe below.
It's all there is to love about tuna melt sandwiches, without any of that carb-heavy bread. And as it turns out, you don't really need bread to enjoy a good tuna melt. Just throw all the ingredients needed to make one (minus the bread) into a big bowl and then portion it out into muffin cups. Throw them all into the oven and about 30 minutes later, you'll be serving up that craving. These are so good, and so easy!
