Bouchons Au Thon (Tuna Cups)...

So I stumbled across this recipe in a book...not a recipe book, exactly...more of an autobiography, actually.  It's from a book called A Homemade Life, by Molly Wizenberg.  The chick who wrote it is obviously inspired by food, and food plays a large part in a lot of her memories, so she recaps stories about making these recipes with family, friends, loves, etc. and then includes the recipe at the end of each story.  There's like, a million tasty looking recipes in there (although this is the only one I've gotten to so far), and it's a really fun, interesting read too.  Check it out if you get a chance :)

Bouchons Au Thon (Tuna Cups)
4 servings, 284 Calories Each


1 - 6oz. can tuna, packed in water, drained well
1 c. shredded Gruyere
1/3 c. sour cream
3 T. tomato paste
3 eggs
1/4 c. yellow onion, chopped fine
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T. Italian parsley, chopped fine (I've tried Italian seasoning, and also dried parsley, in the past and those both worked fine too...I just happened to try fresh this time, because I was using Peapod for the first time and wanted to check out the produce)


Mix everything together in a bowl.  Transfer it to a greased muffin tin (it'll make 8 cups...I usually have 2 per serving).  Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes until they look set on the top and sides.  Let cool for 5-10 minutes before carefully removing from muffin tin.

I'm serving mine with hashbrown parmesan cups (recipe later) for a total of 385 calories.
