These are the result of a very long day sleep from Harry, when I get to be ultra experimental. A tuna mornay muffin, perfect for a lunchbox or the fussy toddler who only wants to feed himself . Harry really loves the Tuna Mornay I make (and it seems to be really popular on the blog), so these are a dream come true for him as he can shovel them in as fast as he likes.

You can use the base recipe for Tuna Mornay here, but stop before the baking step.

Nutrition Note: A meal in a muffin, this satisfying finger food is packed full with tasty and nutritious ingredients, including corn, carrots, peas, pasta, tinned tuna, eggs and cheese. They’re sure to be a hit with the kids, even those who are fussy with fish!

  • 1/2 quantity tuna mornay recipe
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/2 cup multigrain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese


Step 1

Make your tuna mornay but stop before you bake it. Halve the mixture and set aside (freeze the rest for great family meals). Prepare your bread crumb and cheese mixture in a bowl. Preheat the oven to 180°C. -

Step 2

Once the mixture has cooled slightly, stir through the egg and cheese. -

Step 3

Spoon the mixture into a 12 hole muffin tin and sprinkle the cheese and breadcrumbs on top. Bake for around 20 minutes or until the muffins have set (they will harden more once cooled). -

Step 4

Freeze individually, or serve straight away. -

    This sounds great, but I am a little confused! Do I add the pasta to the mornay before I make them into muffins or leave that out completely? And also, just checking that I do add another whole cup of cheese to the mixture to make them into muffins? Thanks Pip

      Hi Pip. Sorry for the confusion. You add the pasta to the mornay sauce and the egg and extra cheese as these help to bind the mixture into muffins. Hope that helps, Ax

    Can you make the tuna mornay mix into muffins if it is cold? Or would you just need to reheat it slightly first?
