A Quick Back To School Recipe

by Karen Rose Smith

With kids back in school and schedules hectic, quick meals can satisfy a hungry family. Tuna Cups is one of my favorites that is easy and quick...and tasty too! I included the recipe in my first Caprice De Luca home staging cozy mystery--STAGED TO DEATH.  My sure my sleuth might have given her cat, Sophia, a spare taste of tuna!

Tuna Cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2 5 oz. cans chunk light tuna in water, drained
2 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 tbsp pickle relish
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
10 slices of bread

Mix tuna, eggs and celery in bowl with mayonnaise and pickle relish until well-blended.  Press one slice of bread into each cup of a regular-sized muffin tin.  Fill each cup with tuna mixture.  Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove from oven and sprinkle each cup with cheese.  Bake another 7 minutes.
