For the Tuna Waffles:

  • (2) 4.6-oz. cans Blue Harbor Fish Co.® Wild Albacore Tuna in Water with No Added Salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp salt

For the Topping:

  • 1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Add the tuna to a large mixing bowl. Break up the pieces a bit with a fork.
  • Add the eggs to the bowl, whisking with the fork. Add the remainder of the ingredients, stirring well with a spoon until combined.
  • Heat a mini waffle iron. When ready, add 1/4 cup of the tuna waffle batter to the waffle iron. Close and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. Repeat for all the waffles.
  • Place all the waffles on a baking sheet(s) in a single layer. Place in the preheated oven for 5 minutes (this helps them all warm back up evenly and crisp up).
  • Meanwhile, prepare the topping, combining the tomatoes, avocado, and balsamic vinegar (if using).
  • When waffles are ready, serve immediately with the topping.


  • The batter for these sometimes separates out from liquid and solid ingredients; just stir for a few seconds each time before you add it to the waffle iron.
  • The oven step is optional but best for temperature and texture when making these mini waffles one at a time.
  • This recipe makes 8 small waffles – one serving is equivalent to two waffles with the topping.
