Albacore Cupcakes

Good News Tuna Loaded Panini

We're 100 miles offshore for 3 months. More often than not, Mother Pacific is intertaining us with her customary 5' to 15' swell. The Fishing Vessel GOOD NEWS, is strong but small, she confidently bounces us from swell to swell, day after day and all she askes in return is we keep her belly full of fuel. Easy enough for GOOD NEWS, but the crew needs a full belly too, and it's a somewhat challenging environment to pepare and consume a decent meal. Think of it like making a sandwich or warming up soup on a roller coaster.

Quick, Portable, Delicious, and Healthy, these Albacore cupcakes work perfect for a snack or lunch on the go, and pack a hearty boost of protien power to keep all your deck-hands working with a smile! Easily made ahead of time and taste great hot or cold.
