So real quick, the premise of the show entails three cooks, providing makeovers of your 3 favorite high calorie, high fat dishes. After your food makeover you receive a basket with all of the ingredients necessary for you to create the made over meals at home. Weeks later the three cooks visit your home to see if you cooked yourself thin. Most of the ladies lose at least one dress size.
After watching a few episodes I quickly developed a list of recipes I want to try. Well I now present my attempt at preparing Cook Yourself Thin's Portabella Tuna Melts.
Here are the ingredients: portabella mushroom caps, Albacore tuna, big ole tomato, parsley, lemon juice, swiss cheese, celery, (not pictured) salt, pepper, and EVOO.
I used low sodium Albacore tuna. The items below were mixed with the tuna. FYI...my instructions seem a bit vague, which is the reason why I provided the link for you to print the recipe.
Next I scooped the gills, cut the stems and washed the mushrooms. I need more practice at gill scooping.
I placed the mushroom caps on a pan and broiled them for 10 minutes.
After broiling the caps, I divided the tuna amongst the 4 mushroom caps.
...and I then placed a slice a Swiss cheese on each cap and broiled them again for too long. My cheese melted quickly...toooooo quickly.
Voila, Portabella Tuna Melts!!!
My Melt vs. Their Melt: I win!
