Tuna Melt Turnover
Tuna Melt Turnovers are a new spin on the classic tuna melt. Canned biscuit dough is filled with a mixture of tuna, mayonnaise, celery and cheese--all the ingredients of that tried and true tuna melt recipe. The result is an easy, portable meal on the go.
- 1 can refrigerated biscuits (8 count)
- 5 ounces canned tuna, drained
- 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix drained tuna, mayonnaise, celery, and cheese.
Flatten each biscuit.
Put 1 Tablespoon of tuna mixture in the center of each of 4 flattened biscuits.
Take the remaining 4 flattened biscuits and arrange over top.
Take a fork and seal all around the edges of the biscuits.
For a glossy appearance, brush the top with milk or cream.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through.
- This tuna melt foldover recipe was inspired by my kids' favorite Cheeseburger Turnover recipe.
- Be sure to drain the tuna for this tuna melt turnover recipe so the biscuits aren't soggy.
- You can use tuna packed in water or oil; I typically use the water version.
- I find that using the Buttermilk canned biscuit variety works better that the flaky, layered type but either would work.
- For a cheesier tuna melt, increase the amount of shredded cheese or use a slice of American or cheddar cheese tucked into the fold-over.
