Ingredients

  • 12 rye bread
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced celery
  • 1/4 cup finely diced sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cans (each 6 oz/170 g) flaked white tuna drained
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced, (green part only) green onions
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced, (green part only) chives

Method

With 2-inch (5 cm) round cutter, cut 24 circles from bread. Bake on foil-lined baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden, 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight containers for up to 24 hours.)

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, celery, red pepper and oregano, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes.

In bowl, mash tuna; mix in mayonnaise, salt, pepper and vegetable mixture. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Spread rounded 1 tbsp (15 mL) tuna mixture to edge of each toast; sprinkle with cheese. Broil on foil-lined baking sheet until cheese is bubbly, 1-1/2 minutes. Sprinkle with onion.
