One of my Favorite Meals... DIY Tuna Melt (pics inside)

Tuna Melt I love tuna, and I love grilled cheese sandwiches. Searching online for tuna melt recipes yielded several different methods which use the oven and just seemed like too much work than I was willing to do.


So here is a very simple, fast, and tasty treat you can make probably with stuff you already have at your house.

You need bread


and a can of tuna


...mayo, cheese, and butter


Cut the cheese into slices...it's easy to put too much


Put about a small fork-fulls of mayo per can


should look like this



It's impossible to spread cold real butter so I just smear it around in the hot pan first, and put each side of the bread in there...it works


flip flip flip until it gets grilled...but more importantly is that the cheese inside is melted



quickly take it out and open it up



put tuna in


enjoy


I would have put some celery in the tuna mix but I don't have any. Either way...it's reeeeeeally good

i doubt its any healthier tho.

You don't put salt, pepper, hot sauce and lemon/lime juice in your tuna salad?

Nah, I'm a relatively plain eater. Sure, I've never tried all of those you listed...but I usually just stick to what I know tastes good Most I've mixed with the tuna is water chestnuts or celery

I usually put the tuna in with the cheese and heat the whole thing. But I agree--it's good cold-weather lunch, especially with some steaming tomato soup to dip it in.

microwave on high - 2 minutes or until cheese has melted
add mayo
mix
put on bread or eat it right out of the bowl like a dip with triscuits or crackers

when im trying to lose weight, i just dont use the mayo and add a lil extra hot sauce. the melted cheese is almost enough to mask the "fishiness" of the tuna when heated
