    slices honey oat or honey wheat bread, crusts removed

  • 3

    tablespoons butter, melted

  • 2

    (6-ounce) cans chunk white tuna packed in water, drained

  • 3

    tablespoons light mayonnaise or salad dressing

  • 1

    tablespoon honey mustard

  • 4

    ounces havarti cheese with dill, cut into small cubes

  • 2

    tablespoons shallot, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously coat twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. Lightly brush one side of bread slices with melted butter. Press bread slices, buttered sides up, into the prepared muffin cups. In a small bowl combine tuna, mayonnaise, and honey mustard. Stir in cheese, shallot, and dried cranberries. Divide tuna mixture among bread-lined muffin cups. Bake about 15 minutes or until filling is hot and bubbly. Remove tuna cups from muffin cups; let stand for 5 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with fresh dill.
