    Looking for a meatless Friday lunch or dinner? This is especially tasty for lunch. With tomatoes as the delivery system, this quick and easy, twist on tuna fish is sure to please!


    • 4 large tomatoes
    • 1 can of tuna
    • 6 hard boiled eggs
    • 2 cups of shredded cheese
    • 2 sticks of celery
    • 1/4 of a regular onion
    • 1/2-1 cup homemade mayonnaise

    Cut all tomatoes in half and gut out the seeds. Place the tomato halves on a roasting pan with a grill on it. Mix together the onion, celery, tuna, and 1 cup of the cheese. Press the mixture into the tomato halves. Set the broiler on high. Cook until the tomatoes are hot. About 8 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese on the top of tomato halves. Broil until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!!

    I must admit, I've had some complaints from guests on this one. If people are not big tomato fans, an alternative is to slice the tomatoes instead of gutting them. This way you'll end up with less tomato and more tuna per bite. 

    You can increase the tuna fish to two cans and omit the hard boiled eggs if you like.
