Tuna Puff Sandwiches

1 can (6 1/2 oz) chunk-style tuna, drained
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped green onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. each salt, oregano and black pepper
2 egg whites
3 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices whole wheat or pumpernickel bread toasted and buttered


1. Blend together tuna, tomatoes, green pepper, onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, oregano and pepper.

2. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold in the Parmesan cheese.

3. Fold egg white mixture into tuna mixture.

5. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 450°F for 10 min. or until tops of sandwiches are lightly browned. Serve immediately.

Tips: For lower caloried sandwiches, choose tuna packed in water rather than oil. To make appetizer sandwiches, cut toast into quarters, mound the filling on the tiny toast squares and bake just before serving.
