Tuna Puffs

1 can refrigerated, flaky baking powder biscuits
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (6 1/2 oz.) tuna in oil, drained and flaked
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon finely chopped celery
1 tablespoon pickle relish

Directions: Preheat oven to 400F. Pull apart each biscuit to make 3 thin biscuits; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff, but not dry. Fold in remaining ingredients. Spread about a tablespoon of tuna mixture on each biscuit. Broil 6 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden. Watch carfully. Serve hot. To make ahead: after spreading tuna on biscuits, refrigerate until ready to broil. Makes 3 dozen.

Notes: Refrigerated biscuit dough is the base. You can assemble, refrigerate and then broil as needed.
