I have always been a fan of the tuna melt and these are a fabulous substitute when I get a tuna melt craving! Cheesy Tuna Bombs are a great snack or small meal! Whenever the mood strikes you! Grab a tube or two of refrigerated biscuits and a can or two of tuna and you are ready to go! You just have to decide how many you want to make!
Every time I make these Cheesy Tuna Bombs I try and put as much cheese as possible into each one! Ken, my husband on the other hand, prefers less cheese and always places less cheese than I do! Even still, they always taste so yummy! We have even used canned chicken or crab and still the results are phenomenal!
This is an easy and delicious treat. Take a peek at our video below.
Cheesy Tuna Bombs
- 1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough (10)
- 1 can tuna, drained
- 2-4 tablespoons mayonaise, enough to coat tuna
- pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 - 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- poppy seeds
Options, to taste
- pickles, sweet or dill, diced
- tomatoes, flesh only, diced
- celery, diced
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Drain can of tuna and dump contents into a bowl. Add mayonaise, green onions and pepper. Set aside.
Grab 2 biscuits and flatten both together until they are about 1/4 of an inch thick. Place a pinch or two of cheese on top of each dough round. Next, add a few tablespoons of your tuna mixture, and another pinch or two of cheese. Bring the edges of the dough together and pinch all of your edges to seal into a ball..
Place each of your tuna bombs into your prepared pan with the edges at the bottom. Brush the tops with melted butter then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake until your biscuits are golden brown, between 18 and 22 minutes. Serve warm. This recipe makes five Cheesy Tuna Bombs.
