Breadless Tuna Melt in Tomato Recipe

Tomato Stuffed with Tuna Melt Recipe


  • 2 Tomatoes; (see the varieties I recommend)
  • 6 oz can tuna
  • 2 tablespoons Greek Yogurt; nonfat
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Basil
  • 2 tablespoons Red Onion; chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Red Bell Pepper; diced
  • 2 slices Pepper Jack Cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Use a pairing knife to remove the top of the tomato. Save the “guts” of the tomato to use in the recipe. Set tomato cups aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix together tuna and yogurt with a fork until well blended. Add all remaining herb and vegetable ingredients and mix well with a fork.
  3. Scoop the tuna mixture into the tomato cups.  Make sure you stuff the mix into the tomato really well because the moisture will come out while being cooked.
  4. Top each tomato with shredded Pepper Jack Cheese before placing on a baking pan or baking dish. I use my Electric Oven Air Fryer to put these together mess-free!
  5. Set in the oven on broil for 3 minutes or until cheese melts and gets a little bit brown on top.
  6. Serve immediately with salad greens or a side of your choosing. I like a nice bed of freshly grown lettuce or micro-greens on the side


Inspired by the yummy veggies and herbs I grow year-round in Ohio.
