Looking for something new to stock your kids lunchboxes with? Are they tired of PB&J?

Well, you definitely should try out these yummy Bumble Bee® Albacore Cheesy Tuna Melt Bites.

My girls love tuna. Most of the time they have it in the form of tuna salad. But they were excited for this new version and loved it!

They are yummy both hot and cold (which makes them great for the lunch box.) These Cheesy Tuna Melt Bites are high in protein and the Bumble Bee® Albacore tuna provides healthy fat, and vitamins and minerals to your child’s lunch.

You can find more great recipes and ideas when you follow Bumble Bee® on Twitter and Pinterest.

There are a couple of tips I have when making these:

  • Make sure to coat muffin tin with plenty of non-stick spray or use cupcake liners which you also coat with non-stick spray. These little yummies like to stick to the pan.
  • Don’t overbake, the bites will become dry.
  • Sprinkle a litte extra cheese on top right after the Bumble Bee® Albacore Cheesy Tuna Melt Bites come out of the oven for a bit more cheesy goodness.

What is your our your child’s  favorite way to enjoy enjoy Bumble Bee® Albacore for lunch?

    OK, so how much is in a tin of Bumble be tuna? We don’t have that brand in Australia so don’t know what sizes it comes in. Large tin, medium tin, snack size tin? Please be aware that when you put recipes online, people outside the US are bound to read tem and need a little more detail and less specific brands.
