Instructions:

Preheat the oven 425 Degrees F

Wash and core the tomatoes. Use a spoon to scoop out the insides of the tomato. Chop flesh into small pieces.

Let tomatoes sit on a paper towel to absorb extra moisture.

In a medium bowl or large bowl, mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, mustard and seasonings – hmmm looks like Tuna salad 😋 

Scoop the tuna mixture into the tomatoes and place in an oven-safe dish or baking sheet.

Drizzle with olive oil, top with shredded cheese and roast for 15 minutes.

The photo below shows the perfect golden brown color of the shredded mozzarella melted cheese.
